EFFECTIVENESS OF MONETARY POLICY IN SWEDEN

type="main" xml:id="coep12160-abs-0001"> We study whether the sensitivity of Swedish interest rates to domestic economic news was affected by the zero lower bound (ZLB) and forward guidance. We find that the sensitivity was reduced at the ZLB at short but not at longer maturities, suggesting that monetary policy remained effective at longer horizons. Moreover, it was unaffected during a later period of the ZLB/negative policy rates, suggesting that monetary policy remained effective at all horizons then. We also find that the sensitivity of interest rates to domestic news was unaffected by forward guidance, suggesting that market participants understood the conditionality of the forward guidance.
