1. For the second day in a row, the central bank carried out reverse repurchase operations, with a net investment of 120 billion yuan.
On the 27th, the central bank carried out reverse repurchase operations for the second day in a row, directly increasing the trading volume from 10 billion yuan the previous day to 120 billion yuan. The central bank is expected to maintain a certain amount of liquidity in the next few days. Since April, the central bank's reverse repo operation has continued to shut down, breaking the expectation of monetary policy spiral easing and gradually causing discussion on monetary policy. There are signs that the heat of this discussion continues to rise recently. The fixed income team of CICC believes that the probability of cutting reserve requirements and interest rates in June is still there. The Citic Securities Mingming team said that while sending a signal to stabilize the capital side, it also hinted that it was difficult for monetary policy to return to the previous ultra-loose state, and the central bank had no intention of keeping the interest rate on funds at an extremely low level.
