  History of the interbank market in Spain The origin of the interbank market in Spain is in deposit accounts that savings banks opened in banks (i.e. it's deposits that an entity in another). It spreads from 1971-72, to increase the number of participants and in 1976 they were already involved in these markets all banks, savings banks and credit cooperatives more important. In the banking crisis of the late 70s appear "blacklisted" in which includes those banks, savings banks and credit unions with problems, and of this form they had not the resources necessary  to finance through the interbank. There is a "spectacular growth" in the 1980s, especially from 1985 (as seen with the following details, where mainly the operations are a day): -          Savings banks have been suppliers of funds to the interbank market. -           Banking in the period 1980 - 96 has been demanding funds altogether (mostly foreign banks due to the discrimination until 1993, one of them was not to capture more than 40 percent of their financing in the market traditional (home, business,...), having to go outside or look in other markets (in 96 foreign banks cannot compete with the funds of banks or savings banks, in addition to the drop in interest rates). Causes of the strong development of the interbank market

  2. Changes in monetary policy (the intermediate target variable passes M3 to M4, the coefficient of box until 1990 was a regulatory instrument for liquidity,...).
  3. Opening of the Spanish financial system to foreign banks.
  4. Appearance of specialized institutions, as the mediating societies of the money market: these entities were part of the ECAOL, and were created in 1981 with the function of dealer (assuming risks), disappearing in 1995 before the need for the ECAOL it should become for credit financial entities, since its scope was limited, and opted to be absorbed by any bank or become banks (are the only entities that disappear in the ECAOL change to ENF).

  Types of interbank markets Therefore, INTERBANK markets are differentiated: 1. TRADITIONAL INTERBANK MARKET OF DEPOSITS. 2. INTERBANK MARKET OF TRANSFERABLE DEPOSITS (DIT´S): In recent years (with the consequences of the reform of the coefficient of box, falling interest rates,...), interbank markets have stabilized their volume of business, and there have been attempts to relaunch it, the most significant being the creation of the DIT´S in 1992. 3. INTERBANK MARKET OF THE BANK OF SPAIN  certificates: only negotiable between banks. 4 INTERBANK MARKET OF AFIR (AGREEMENTS OF FUTURES ON INTEREST RATE): Operations consist of the 2 Contracting Parties agree at a given time t0 the settlement at a future date t1 of the differential between the interest rate agreed on t0 and the interest rate of liquidation in t1, where Q is the amount that in t1 receive.   Operations in interbank markets The OPERATIONS often held in the INTERBANK MARKETS (Mainly in the Interbank deposits): 1.
