What’s ahead from the People’s Bank of China, China’s Global Times with the heads up: 

  • highly likely to announce interest rate cuts or reserve requirement ratio (RRR) cuts in the second half of the year 
  • to help accelerate an economic recovery from the negatives induced by the COVID-19 outbreak and external uncertainties
  • cuts are most likely to be made on interest rates for the standing lending facility (SLF) and RRR
  • PBOC will use a variety of tools including reserve requirement ratio cuts, interest rate reductions and re-lending
  • the Bank wants M2 money supply and aggregate financing to grow at notably higher rates than last year
