Central Bank rate is the rate of interest which a central bank charges on the loans and advances to a commercial bank. The bank rate is known by a number of different terms depending on the country and has changed over time in some countries as the mechanism used to manage the rate have changed.

Whenever a bank has a shortage of funds, they can typically borrow from the central bank based on the monetary policy of the country.

The borrowing is commonly done via repos, where the repo rate is the rate at which the central bank lends short-term money to the banks against securities. A reduction in the repo rate will help banks to get money at a cheaper rate. When the repo rate increases, borrowing from the central bank becomes more expensive. It is more applicable when there is a liquidity crunch in the market.

In contrast, the reverse repo rate is the rate at which banks can park surplus funds with reserve bank. This is mostly done when there is surplus liquidity in the market as a high reverse repo rate will make it attractive to banks to park surplus funds with the central bank.

The interest rate that is charged by a country’s central or federal bank on loans and advances controls the money supply in the economy and the banking sector. This is typically done on a quarterly basis to control inflation and to stabilize the country’s exchange rates. A fluctuation in bank rates triggers a ripple-effect as it impacts every sphere of a country’s economy. For instance, the prices in stock markets tend to react to interest rate changes. A change in bank rates affects customers as it influences prime interest rates for the personal loan.

    Time to sell #Aussie against #usd #gbp #eur. #audusd looks like a low-risk sale. Key resistance 0.73, estimated target 2%

    We keep staying long @ #gbpusd from 1.29. #Pound has a good upside.

    Lost five 1 dollar accounts in a row during last 2 weeks. Something wrong with market or me. Need to take a little pause. High volatility and uncertainty in the market is a reason for upcoming rate hike for USD from one side, & US debt from other. I see untechnical market. #usd
