Chinese central bank pumps $3 bn into market

Beijing, May 16 (IANS) China’s central bank on Monday pumped 25 billion yuan ($3 billion) into the market to preserve liquidity.

The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) put 45 billion yuan into seven-day reverse repo, a process by which central banks purchase securities from banks with an agreement to sell them back in the future, Xinhua news agency reported.

The reverse repo was priced to yield 2.25 percent, according to a PBOC statement.

Reverse repo worth 20 billion yuan matures on Monday, so the central bank has effectively injected 25 billion yuan into the market.

On Monday’s interbank market, the benchmark overnight Shanghai Interbank Offered Rate (Shibor) was up by 0.3 basis point to 2.005 percent.

The Shibor for seven-day loans also increased 0.3 basis point to 2.327 percent and for three-month loans rose 0.4 basis point to 2.9075 percent.
