Data presentation - Detailed description

The exchange rate of the euro is not a policy target for the ECB. Thus far it has only intervened in the foreign exchange market in 2000 and 2011, and when it does so it acts either alone (in a so-called unilateral intervention) or together with other central banks (in a so-called coordinated intervention).
