At a glance

The monetary base founded on the circulation of bank notes and the sight deposits of domestic banks at the SNB increased slightly until midyear (2017) before decreasing somewhat once again. This decline reflects a shift from sight deposits of domestic banks to other sight deposits held at the National Bank. The total sight deposits held at the National Bank
remained virtually unchanged in the second half year. As in the previous year, the circulation of bank notes made only a marginal contribution to growth in the monetary base.
