Israel’s foreign exchange reserves at the end of February 2009 stood at $40,627 million, a decrease of $1,129 million from their level at the end of January.
 
The change in February derived from:
––an increase of $1,700 million due to Bank of Israel purchases on the market, as part of its planned increase in the foreign exchange reserves;
––decreases due to a decline of $2,042 million in banks' foreign currency deposits with the Bank of Israel, public sector transfers abroad of some $686 million, and a downward revaluation of $101 million of the foreign exchange reserves.
