China central bank continues to skip open market operations
 
Text size
BEIJING, Jan. 8 (Xinhua) -- China's central bank suspended open market operations for the 11th working day Monday, citing sufficient liquidity in the banking system.

Liquidity was at a "relatively high level," which can offset the influence from factors such as maturing reverse repos, the People's Bank of China (PBOC) said on its website.

A reverse repo is a process by which the central bank purchases securities from commercial banks through bidding, with an agreement to sell them back in the future.

The suspension of reverse repos led to a net withdrawal of 40 billion yuan (about 6.17 billion U.S. dollars) from China's money market Monday, as previous reverse repo contracts matured.

The PBOC said earlier that it would conduct open market operations in a flexible way to meet the liquidity needs of banks.

China will continue a prudent and neutral monetary policy in 2018 as the world's second-largest economy strives to balance growth with risk prevention.

"Prudent monetary policy should be kept neutral, the floodgates of monetary supply should be controlled, and credit and social financing should see reasonable growth," said a statement released after the Central Economic Work Conference.
