China’s central bank injected a net 33 billion yuan (US$5.4 billion) into the interbank market this week, easing liquidity conditions after the weeklong National Day holiday. The People’s Bank of China sold 48 billion yuan of 14-day reverse repurchase agreements (repos) at a 4.1 percent yield on Thursday, after a 65 billion yuan issue of seven-day reverse repos on Tuesday, central bank data show. The biweekly open market operations resulted in a net 33 billion yuan of infusions since a total of 80 billion yuan of reverse repos are maturing.
