* Asset Purchase Program (APP) – APP stocks will increase by the end of the second quarter. The monthly purchase volume was 40 billion euros in April and 30 billion euros in May. It is expected to drop to 20 billion in June. Net purchases will be discontinued in the third quarter. National central banks buy government bonds at their own risk, reinvesting the capital within a year and for as long as possible.

** Pandemic Emergency Purchase Program (PEPP) – PEPP has ended, and national central banks are only reinvesting reimbursement amounts. There may be fluctuations in inventory from week to week, but this must be balanced on a monthly basis. Central banks buy public bonds at their own risk, and fully reinvest them by the end of 2024. The European Central Bank publishes details every two months.
