    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) cut its benchmark interest rate and lending rate by 25 basis points, a day after ECB’s Draghi hinted at more easing in December.

    PBOC reduced 1-Year Lending Rate By 25 Bps to 4.35% effective as of Oct 24 and 1-Year Deposit Rate by 25 Bps, to 1.50%.

    The PBOC said it intends to improve regulation of Int. Rates, improve the monetary policy transmission mechanism.

    As said earlier, the move comes a day after Draghi expressed the possibility of more QE/rate cut in December. It remains to be seen how long the Fed and the BOE stand on the other side of the fresh race to loosen the monetary policy.
