Effective as of today, China’s central bank, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC), cut its reserve requirement ratio for banks by 50 basis points to 17% for certain lenders to boost the economy, according to media reports. On Monday, the PBOC also injected about $100 billion worth of long-term cash into the market in order to offset the effects of industrial bankruptcies and job layoffs due to weak demand and high service costs.
