The PBOC announced the reform of the Loan Market Quote Rate (LPR) as the benchmark for bank loan pricing. From Tuesday, the National Interbank Funding Center will announce the loan market quotation rate at 9:30 am on the 20th of each month. The quotation line of the loan market quotation rate will be quoted to the interbank lending center in the form of the open market operating rate plus points. After the inter-bank lending center removes the highest and lowest quotations, it calculates the loan market quotation rate by the average method.
According to the analysis, after the loan market interest rate quotation mechanism is clear, the PBOC will lower the overall interest rate level of the market by lowering the MLF interest rate. The policy focus is to reduce the financing costs of the real economy. At present, the downward pressure on the economy is still large. The short-term disguised “reduction of interest rates” and the timely adjustment of the MLF interest rate are still expected.
