European Central Bank's

The European Central Bank's balance sheet increased last week by EUR11.4 billion, as the central bank's lending to eurozone financial institutions and its bond buys lifted the balance sheet's volume. The balance sheet, or the value of the assets on the ECB's books, now sits at EUR2.54 trillion. The ECB's purchases of EUR60 billion in mostly government bonds per month between March of this year and Sept. 2016 should bring the size of the balance sheet above EUR3 trillion.
