I been hearing that the actions of the ECB greatly influence the swedish offical bank rate, what possible "actions" would that be, theoretically?

    $\begingroup$ One of the main channel I can think of is the currency effect: by lowering its interest rate, the ECB pushes investors towards other currencies such as the swiss franc and the krona. To preserve its competitiveness the Riksbank could be tempted to lower its interest rate too ! $\endgroup$ – Alexis L. May 28 '16 at 12:22
