Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

So it's a way to shift the basket of foreign currencies you're holding in your central bank's vault without getting ripped off by hot money speculators?

But if you're propping up the € instead of the US$, doesn't that imply falling US$/€ exchange rates? Shouldn't it be possible to detect this shift when looking at a five- or ten-year time series?

And if I want to take a class that lets me understand the mechanics of how all this works, what kinds of words do I need to look for in the course description?
