wCBDC . The wCBDC is designed as a new instrument used for money market transactions. Moneymarketparticipants can obtain wCBDC from the central bank using HQLA such as government bonds as underlying collateral, through either outright purchases or repo transactions. The wCBDC is interest bearing with a variable interest rate. The interest rate on wCBDC can be set to zero when first introduced (making it closer to banks’ excess reserves
This Technical Note reviews Systemic Liquidity Management in Serbia. The liquidity management framework in Serbia, although generally efficient, is constrained by instability in the demand for excess reserves. The demand for excess reserves is generally a function of the quality of the systemic liquidity management by the central bank, the technical capability of commercial banks’ treasurers to manage their balances adequately, and the overall efficiency of payment systems facilities for money market participants. The relatively high and unstable demand for excess reserves is therefore somewhat puzzling in Serbia.

The relatively high and unstable demand for excess reserves is therefore somewhat puzzling in Serbia ( Figure 5 ). The NBS’ liquidity management capacity is high; commercial bankers, especially the large foreign-owned banks, have efficient cash management standards. The real-time gross settlement (RTGS) system

, in models where firms and households learn adaptively about the economy over time, persistently low inflation could cause inflation expectations to gradually converge to very low levels as well, which, in turn, will impact actual inflation. This can make it more difficult for a central bank to achieve its inflation target. 5
10. In practice, measuring inflation expectations is difficult . One approach to measuring inflation expectations is to survey households, firms, and others, such as moneymarketparticipants (or economists), asking them what they expect the

year ending in March) net sales of SBIs were almost equal to the net increase in total rediscounts, leaving reserve money unaffected (see table). With BI becoming the principal channel of interbank funds, little room was left for direct trading among moneymarketparticipants. This outcome reflected the interest rate structure, which made SBIs more attractive than short-term SBPUs as an outlet for banks’ excess liquidity, and the funding of loans through SBPUs more attractive than funding through deposits.
In 1986/87, the authorities again accommodated the banks
