SNB’s IMF data

This link on the SNB website shows the data the central bank provides to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). It indicates the SNB Forex and gold reserves in the last month. The data delivery is called “IMF Special Data Dissemination Standard (SNB Data)”

It is released together with the international investment position, some monetary aggregates and the balance of payments. It is transmitted to the International Monetary Fund and disclosed to the public. Again there is an archive. So one can compare the change from month to month.

 

Example Data May 2013:

For comparison, the January 08, 2013: IMF Data

Gold SDR reserve Foreign currency Total

SNB Reserves December 2012 according IMF data (source SNB)

The increase in foreign currency reserves this year can be reasoned by price increases of euro and US dollar, while the gold holdings lost in value.
