FXStreet (Delhi) – Research Team at BBH, notes that the PBOC announced a rate cut for its Standing Lending Facility (SLF) for local financial institutions across several maturities. Key Quotes “The SLF for overnight maturity was cut to 2.75% from 4.50% and the 7-day maturity to 3.25% from 5.50%.

Seasonality also plays a role, as we approach the end of the year. Either way, the move can only help sentiment in China.” For more information, read our latest forex news.
