PBOC Confirms New Liquidity Tool as It Holds Off Easing

Updated on

China’s central bank has published details on its latest tool to provide liquidity as banks from Goldman Sachs Group Inc. to Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Ltd. see a rate cut as unlikely.

The People’s Bank of China confirmed it pumped 769.5 billion yuan ($126 billion) into the country’s lenders in the last two months through a newly-created Medium-term Lending Facility. The PBOC injected 500 billion yuan in September and another 269.5 billion yuan in October via the facility -- all termed at three months with an interest rate of 3.5 percent.
