China keeps 1-year LPR unchanged at 3.85%, as expected - keeps 5-year LPR unchanged at 4.65%, as expected.
PBoC also boosted a daily liquidity injection to CNY120Bln.
Analysts at TD Securities explained ahead of today's decision that ''while there has been a clear deterioration in economic activity, PBoC is unlikely to react with a blunt tool such as a cut in the LPR though there remains a risk of a small 5-10bp cut by year-end.''
''The MLF liquidity injection was undertaken at a constant rate, implying that the LPR rates will also be unchanged. We think there is a greater chance of another cut in the RRR soon.''

A run back to a 50% mean reversion that meets old structure could be targetted near 0.7280. However, failures below 0.7220 open risk of a retest of the mid-Aug lows and 071 the figure.''
