The Riksbank to offer USD loans on 28 October

The Riksbank is to offer additional USD loans. Loans totalling USD 7 billion will be provided in an auction held on 28 October for the Riksbank's primary monetary policy counterparties. The loans, which will be provided against collateral, have a time to maturity of 28 days and the payment date is 30 October, which means that the loans will fall due on 27 November 2008. As in previous USD auctions, a minimum interest rate will be set that is related to the expected policy rate in the USA.
