PBOC to drain 85 bln yuan via forward repos

SHANGHAI, March 4 (Reuters) - China’s central bank will drain 85 billion yuan ($13.83 billion) from the money markets through forward bond repurchase agreements on Tuesday, traders said.

The People’s Bank of China drained 35 billion yuan through 14-day repos and 50 billion yuan through 28-day repos.

Maturing repos will inject a net 108 billion yuan into the banking system this week.
