a) The term "repo" includes repurchase agreements (also known as "classic repos", "all-in" or "US-style" repos), sell/buy-backs, pensions livrees, simultaneas, gensaki, etc.
b) The sale and the repurchase (or buy-back) in each repo should be treated as one contract and only the repurchase should be reported, ie do not report both the sale and repurchase (or buy-back).
c) Report both the repo and reverse repo side of each transaction, ie the transactions done by both counterparties. This is particularly important for the analysis in (1).
d) The survey covers all countries in Europe (the EU and the EU Accession countries, Norway and Switzerland) and all currencies.
e) Please give the value of cash borrowed or lent. If this is not possible, give the market value of the collateral or, as a last resort, the nominal value of the collateral. Please indicate your choice.
f) (3.1.1) includes all overnight, tom/next, spot/next and corporate/next transactions dealt on June 10 and all transactions dealt before June 10 which will mature on June 11.
g) Transactions should be included on a transaction date basis. In other words, include all transactions agreed by close on June 10. The value date does not matter except for the analysis in
(3), which uses the value date to distinguish forward-forward repos.
