--Skips OMO For Second Day
--Adds Net CNY107 Billion for the Day, CNY87 Billion For The Week
     BEIJING (MNI) - The People's Bank of China injected CNY404 billion in
one-year Medium-term Lending Facility (MLF) loans Friday, with the rate
unchanged at 3.20%,  PBOC said on its official website.
     The PBOC also skipped its open market operation for the second day in a
row. 
     This resulted in a net injection of CNY107 billion for the day, as a total
of CNY90 billion in reverse repos and CNY207 billion in MLF loans mature on
Friday. 
     A total of CNY396 billion in MLF loans mature in November.
     The PBOC injected a net of CNY87 billion in liquidity this week, including
reverse repos and MLFs.
     The CFETS-ICAP money-market sentiment index ended at 34 on Thursday, down
from 43 at Wednesday's close. The lower the reading the better the liquidity
conditions in the interbank market.
     The benchmark seven-day repo average was last at 2.6886%, compared with
2.8437% on Thursday.
