- Unchanged for the 19th consecutive month.

And now, this morning, Chinese media – Economic Information Daily claims that the PBOC is unlikely to cut the MLF rate this year. Which makes sense, time is running out!
Meanwhile, referring to the People’s Bank of China latest quarterly report on monetary policy:

- Nomura: “In our opinion, these cuts represent an official change in PBoC policy and pave the way for more decisive monetary and credit easing”
- Macquarie: “This time the deletion of the sentence paves the way for an acceleration of monetary easing”
