It performs tasks in the general interest at both national and international level. The Bank's activities consist of the issuing of bank notes and the conducting of monetary policy. It supplies bank notes printed at the Royal Mint to private banks and exchanges old or damaged notes and coins. It is responsible for setting interest rates to influence prices and control inflation in line with standards dictated by the Euro system, which conducts the monetary policy for the Euro area. The Bank's other activities include managing the inter-banking payment system for private banks, issuing State loans, acting for the Belgian State on the stock exchange, compiling statistics and supplying economic information.
The London Stock Exchange does not disclose whether a trade is a buy or a sell so this data is estimated based on the trade price received and the LSE-quoted mid-price at the point the trade is placed. It should only be considered an indication and not a recommendation.
Trades priced above the mid-price at the time the trade is placed are labelled as a buy; those priced below the mid-price are sells; and those priced close to the mid-price or declared late are labelled 'N/A'.
