2nd March 2016

The Chinese central bank has opted to reduce the reserve requirement ratio by 0.5% in a bid to inject more liquidity into their financial system. This is reported here. The cash to deposits ratio will fall to 17 per cent for larger banks although this is still very high by international standards. Our chart below from Trading Economics tracks the reductions in the cash reserve ratio for big banks since the middle of last year.
