ECB Says Didn’t Settle Any Bond Purchases for 11th Week

May 28 (Bloomberg) -- The European Central Bank said it didn’t buy any government bond purchases for an 11th straight week.

The Frankfurt-based ECB said it will take seven-day term deposits tomorrow to absorb the 212 billion euros ($266 billion) of liquidity created since the program started in May 2010, a practice it employs to ensure the purchases don’t fuel inflation. The ECB halted the bond-buying program after its two three-year loans to banks totaling more than 1 trillion euros helped debt markets to rally.
