Change of reserves:

An increase in foreign assets held by the central bank is recorded with a positive or a negative sign for the change of reserves?

    good question. While I'm not positive, I believe holding foreign assets increases a bank's reserves. (It certainly increases its foreign reserves).

    that's what i don't get, if you increase foreign assets, it means you pay out money right? Would the reserves decrease?
