Global liquidity

In 2018 global liquidity growth carried over buoyancy from 2017, but at a more moderate pace, slowing from 6.9% in December 2017 to 5.4% in June 2018. This slowdown in liquidity growth occurred in both developed economies (from 6.7% to 4.6%) and developing economies (from 7.4% to 7.1%) (see figure II.1). The evolution of global liquidity is a result, among other things, of the rising cost of credit, the appreciation of the dollar and vulnerabilities in some developing economies, as reflected in the higher risk ratings for that group.
