HONG KONG (Reuters) - The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) sold HK$1.55 billion ($200.01 million) into the market as the Hong Kong Dollar HKD=D3 strengthened to its trading limit.
The aggregate balance - the key gauge of cash level in the banking system - will increase to HK$64.97 billion on 24 April 2020, a HKMA spokesman said.
Prior to this intervention, the central bank has sold HK$4.34 billion since the currency breached the strong-side limit for the first time since 2015 on Tuesday.
