1/  Beginning 3 June 2016, the BSP shifted its monetary operations to an interest rate corridor (IRC) system. The repurchase (RP) and Special Deposit Account (SDA) 
 windows were replaced by standing overnight lending facility (OLF) and overnight deposit facility (ODF), respectively. The reverse repurchase (RRP) facility was 
 modified to a purely overnight RRP. Starting 3 June 2016, the interest rates for these facilities were set by the Monetary Board as follows: 3.5 percent in the OLF  
 (a reduction from 6.0 percent); 3.0 percent in the overnight RRP rate (an adjustment from 4.0 percent); and 2.5 percent in the ODF (no change from the previous  
 SDA rate). The OLF and ODF will serve as the upper bound and lower bound, respectively, of the IRC system.  
2/  Effective 31 December 2013, SIBOR rates (in US$) sourced from Reuters has been discontinued. Starting 1 January 2014, SIBOR data for the selected reference  
 periods in this report will show SIBOR rates (in Singapore $) sourced from Bloomberg.  
3/  Data starting 1 July 2012 refers to European market prices.
