     BEIJING (MNI) - The PBOC skipped OMO on Friday for the sixth consecutive
trading day, stating that the increasing fiscal expenditure towards month-end
would absorb the impact of maturing reverse repos and keep liquidity conditions
at a "reasonable and stable" level. 
  - This resulted in a net drain of CNY30 billion for the day after maturity of
the same amount of reverse repos;
  - The central bank drained a total of CNY160 billion this week by skipping its
OMO. After nearly two months of a loose stance on liquidity, the PBOC tightened
its policy after the seasonal liquidity demand reduced. 
  - CFETS-ICAP's money-market sentiment index closed at 43 on Thursday, slightly
down from 42 on Wednesday; 
  - Benchmark 7-day deposit repo average rose to 2.6683% on Friday from 2.5570%
on Thursday: Wind Information.
