Transcript of "Open market operations"

  1. 1. <ul><li>So what is ‘OMO’? </li></ul><ul><li>While OMO is a famous detergent brand from Unilever, the ‘OMO’ we are talking about is something very different. </li></ul>If one were to read articles in ET on monetary policy and macro-economic development, one often comes across a term called ‘OMO’.
  2. 2. First of all… <ul><li>One must understand that when there is excess liquidity in the market, the RBI intervenes and sucks it by issuing bonds, among other means. </li></ul><ul><li>At the same time, if the liquidity starts to dry up in the markets, the RBI intervenes once again and infuses liquidity by buying back the bonds that are with the investors. </li></ul>
  3. 3. What’s ‘OMO’ then? <ul><li>This interaction of the RBI with the market is termed ‘OMO’ or ‘Open Market Operations’. </li></ul>
  4. 4. What is the outcome on account of OMO? <ul><li>When the RBI buys bonds from the market and infuses liquidity, the consequences are: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It tends to soften the interest rates </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fresh bonds can be issued at lower yields and the government can thus borrow at a reasonable cost </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It enables corporates to borrow at favorable interest rates </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It prevents the rupee from strengthening unnecessarily and thereby protects the interest of exporters </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It may tend to increase inflation </li></ul></ul>

  8. 8. <ul><li>What: Open Market Operations (OMOs) are the means of implementing monetary policy by which a central bank controls the nation’s money supply by buying and selling government securities, or other financial instruments. </li></ul><ul><li>Why: It helps regulate interest rates and foreign exchange rates. </li></ul>To Sum Up
