FRANKFURT (Dow Jones) – Eurozone banks’ demand for long-term liquidity from the European Central Bank (ECB) has fallen significantly on the 10th and, for now, the latest Targeted Long-Term Refinancing Operation Series III (TLTRO3). According to the European Central Bank, 159 banks (ninth TLTRO3: 152) raised €51,975 (97.568) billion for 1092 days.

The eighth TLTRO3 allocated 97.568 billion, the seventh 330.501 billion euros, the sixth 50.414 billion euros, the fifth 174.464 billion, the fourth 1308.43 billion, the third 114.979 billion, the second 97.72 billion, and the first 3, 4 billion euros.

If certain lending targets are reached, institutions receive liquidity from TLTRO3 at an interest rate of 50 basis points lower than the current deposit rate of 0.50 percent. In other words: At best, you’ll get 1.00 percent interest on the loan you take out yourself – until June 2022. The deal will be valued on September 29 and mature on September 25, 2024.

The board has likely discussed a possible follow-up program over the past couple of days. Monetary policy decisions will be announced at 1:45 pm.
