Rules and regulations
The Rules and Regulations apply to RIX and monetary policy instruments. Where applicable, they constitute terms of agreement for the individual participants.
The Rules and Regulations apply to RIX as well as to monetary policy instruments because these two systems are interconnected in a number of respects. The Riksbank´s ability to influence the overnight interest rate ultimately depends on the Riksbank being in a position to set the terms and the extent of overnight deposits from and lending to the banks that are participants in RIX.
Moreover, the requirements concerning collateral in RIX are partly the same as those for monetary policy instruments. The Riksbank is striving for a futher coordination of collateral requirements in the two systems.
