This research aims to identify the main monetary policy tools in Jordan, then, to estimate their effect on price and output level. A time series data covering the period between 1993 and 2013 were utilized to estimate the targeted models using two-step regression. Firstly, the authors measured the impact of indirect policy tools on money supply and, secondly, they determined the impact of money supply on price and output levels. Results show that open market operations of the Central Bank of Jordan through issuance of certificates of deposit, especially at the beginning of 1993 and the repurchase agreements have been effective in influencing the money supply in Jordan. Unfortunately, this policy was not able to control the real or nominal output level even though it has an effect on the price level.
