PBOC News: China’s Central Bank.

- China’s Central Bank fixed the Yuan rate 378 pips weaker against the US Dollar to 6.4943 on May 4th, the biggest downward move since the Yuan was de-pegged against the US Dollar last August. Following the fix, the onshore USD/CNY broke 6.50, the first time in a month.

- Beginning in May, the PBOC will issue Pledged Supplementary Lending (PSL) to the three policy banks, China Development Bank, Agricultural Development Bank of China and China Import Bank, at the beginning of each month.

- On May 4th, the Central Bank added 100 billion yuan through 7-day reverse repurchase agreements (repos) with an interest rate of 2.25%. The reverse repos maturing on that day were 120 billion yuan. The net withdrawal was 20 billion yuan.

- China Foreign Exchange Trade System (CFETS), a sub-institution of the PBOC, launched standardized Yuan forward contracts (C-forward) in the interbank foreign exchange market on May 3rd. During the first trading day, 25 institutions provided quotations on 9 types of C-forwards; 21 institutions reached 62 C-forward deals.

China Finance Information: a finance online media administrated by Xinhua Agency.

- The Ministry of Finance issued 15 billion yuan of 3-year certificated Government bonds, with an interest rate of 3.9% and 15 billion yuan of 5-year maturities, with an interest rate of 4.32%. Compared to the government bonds issued in March, the interest rate on both 3 and 5-year maturities has dropped by 0.1%.

- China’s fixed asset investment (excluded in the agriculture sector) in Q1’2016 was 8.583 trillion yuan, increasing by 10.7% from a year ago. The investment in infrastructure increased 19.6% to 1.538 trillion Yuan. The investment in the real estate sector rose 6.2% to 1.768 trillion yuan, and in the manufacturing industry increased 6.4% to 2.772 trillion yuan.

- The debt of China Railway Corp., the national railway operator, hit 4.14 trillion yuan in the Q1’2016, increasing 10.4% from a year ago. The net loss was 8.73 billion yuan during the same period, increasing 35.1% year-on-year. The continued drops in rail freight transport were the largest contributor to China Railway’s losses. Over the past three years, the rail freight transport volume has been shrinking at an accelerating rate. In the Q1’2016, the volume of rail freight transport dropped by an additional -9.43%.
