The PBOC conducted 30 billion yuan (US$4.27 billion) of seven-day reverse repos, a liquidity-injecting process in which the central bank purchases securities from commercial banks through bidding with an agreement to sell them back in the future.

The interest rate for the operation remained at 2.55 percent, the PBOC said in a statement.

No reverse repos matured on Monday.
