SINGAPORE: The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) said on Monday (Apr 6) it will begin the disclosure of its foreign exchange intervention operations in April to enhance the market's understanding of its monetary policy stance.

The data on MAS' net foreign exchange purchases from its intervention operations for the six months to Dec 31, 2019, will be published on Apr 9, instead of in July as previously announced, and every six months thereafter.

The date of disclosure has been brought forward to provide more timely information to the market, and align with MAS' monetary policy cycle, it said.
