Monetary developments 2017Jan

The growth of monetary resources remains high
Despite a slight decrease, the growth rate of overnight deposits remains high (+10.0% in January, after +10.7% in December). Domestic resources included in M2-M1 accelerate smoothly (+0.7%, after +0.6%), the increase in saving accounts (+2.2%, after +1.1%) offsetting the decline in deposits with agreed maturity of up to 2 years (-5.6%, after -1.5%). The growth of domestic resources included in M3-M2 becomes more pronounced (+7.7%, after +5.8%), driven by MMF shares (+7.8%, after +3.4%). Overall, domestic resources included in M3 accelerate slightly (+5.8%, after +5.7%).
After taking monetary external liabilities and assets vis-à-vis other monetary union members into account, the growth rate of the French component of the euro area monetary aggregate M3 slightly decreases, from +6.3%, to +6.1%.

Additional information
The outstanding amount of monetary claims (excluding coins and banknotes) consists of claims with an initial maturity of up to and including 2 years that monetary counterparts (basically households, non-financial corporations, general government excluding central government, insurance corporations, investment funds and financial vehicle corporations) hold against monetary financial institutions (deposit-taking institutions, sociétés de financement under French law, Caisse des dépôts et consignations, MMF and the central bank).
Saving accounts include regulated saving accounts, i.e. livrets A, livrets de développement durable, comptes d'épargne logement, livrets d'épargne populaire, and non-regulated saving accounts, i.e. livrets jeunes and livrets ordinaires. Amounts held on regulated saving accounts are partly transferred by deposit-taking institutions to a fund managed by the Caisse des dépôts et consignations. Debt securities with maturity of up to 2 years mainly include certificates of deposit (short term paper) issued by French deposit-taking institutions and subscribed by neither MMF nor deposit-taking institutions counterparts.
Annual growth rates are adjusted for reclassifications and revaluations but not for foreign exchange rate effects.
