The action undertakes a country when it buys and sells its own currency to protect its exchange value.
Actions registered competitive traders undertake by on the NYSE to meet the exchange requirement that 75% of their traded be stabilizing, meaning that sell orders follow a plus tick and buy orders a tick.
Actions a managing underwriter undertake so that the market price does not fall below the public offering price during the offering period

Price Stabilization

The ultimate goal of the steps a central bank takes to reduce inflation. That is, when prices are rising rapidly, the central bank may reduce the amount of money in circulation and/or raise interest rates to bring down the rate at which prices are rising. Price stabilization does not bring prices down to their former levels, but it does reduce the rate at which they rise to a more sustainable level. While this is popular in theory, it is important to note that Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker caused a recession in the early 1980s when he raised interest rates to 18% to achieve price stabilization.

Both Cardoso and Menem had significant decree powers when they initiated their respective stabilization plans.
He appointed two businessmen from the exporting agricultural sector to his cabinet and got them involved in the creation of the stabilization plan.
That is probably one of the reasons that he was able to gather an unusual popular support for initiating stabilization policies.
Military was also an important potential opposition to Menem's stabilization due to sharp decreases in military budget and privatization of military-owned industries that stabilization required.
This was needed especially for the structural reforms which would ensure the continuity of stabilization by legally controlling economic policy-making.
As it was an exchange rate-based stabilization, the Convertibility Plan created an immediate economic boom.
The increases in the values of the densities with increasing stabilization times confirm the lateral compaction of the whole fiber structures due to the development of extensive crosslinks in the structure of the stabilized fiber samples.
DSC thermograms can be useful for studying the thermal analysis of unstabilized and thermally stabilized polyacrylonitrile fibers in terms of the changes in the nature and the extend of exotherms associated with thermal stabilization. Figure 4 shows the progress of thermal stabilization where the area under the exothermic peak gradually and continuously decreases (Fig.

TGA thermograms show decreasing weight loss with increasing stabilization time indicating increasing carbon yield due to increasing degree of crosslinking density.
Thermally stabilized samples beginning with stabilization time of 5 min at an isothermal temperature of 240 C shows a very severe thermal decomposition between 300 and 450 C with a net weight loss of 34.5% at 500[degrees]C which leads to a net carbon yield of 65.5%.
