Interbank rates fall sharply

Interbank rates has fallen sharply from 0.26 percent to 0.98 percent for all terms while SBV continued to inject net capital into the market for the second consecutive week with a net amount of nearly 10 trillion dong.

According to BVSC’s weekly newsletter from April 17 to April 21, SBV injected 38 trillion dong through OMO last week. The amount of capital maturing in the week was 28.023 trillion dong. In other words, 9.977 trillion dong was injected through the SBV. In addition, SBV did not issue bills for all terms.

This demonstrated that the liquidity of the banking system was not too redundant, said BVSC

The interbank rates tended to fall sharply (within a range of 0.26 percent – 0.98 percent) for all terms last week.
