“It’s Going To End Ugly Unless The PBoC Changes Its Attitude To Liquidity”
by Tyler Durden
The big trouble in massive China that we discussed here is weighing heavily on the liquidity in the debt-fueled nation. As The FT reports, several banks have had to delay or dramatically reduce Chinese bond issues as the impact of a tight onshore credit market begins to be felt. “China is much more funding dependent than in the past,” warns one analyst, as issuers are dealing with a string of problems stemming from the drying up of interbank market liquidity and fierce competition from wealth management and trust products for investors’ funds. “Government and policy banks have suffered the most. Now pressure is coming to corporates,” one trader pointed out, adding, ominously, “it’s going to end pretty ugly unless PBOC changes its attitude to liquidity;” which, of course, is exactly the situation the 3rd Plenum outline is looking to change.
