    Grammar Question

    I am not sure of writing "The behavior of international reserves suggests that the Central Bank absorbs foreign currencies when they are settled and they are sold to the market a few months after the shock".

    Besides, when we use a reference for a footnote, do we put it after the period or before? Central Bank.1 or Central Bank1.

    Re: Grammar Question

    Your sentence seems fine to me except that I would place a comma after "settled". In American English, we place the footnote superscript after the final punctuation. We have differences with British English about these matters, so I am not sure about BE.

    We'd place the punctuation after the superscript. We see it as part of the sentence.

    Re: Grammar Question

    Are you sure you don't mean "unsettled"?

    5jj, I was suspicious that that might be the case.
