TABLE-PBOC weekly open market operations at a glance

SHANGHAI, Nov 8 (Reuters) - The People's Bank of China (PBOC) conducted a
net drain of 101 billion yuan ($16.18 billion) from the banking system this
week, according to Reuters' calculations. 
    The PBOC has injected a net total of 1.482 trillion yuan so far this year.
The central bank also reduced banks' required reserve ratio twice, in February
and again in May, injecting an estimated 800 billion yuan into the banking 
system.
    Last year it injected a net 1.907 trillion yuan into the market through open
market operations, which was largely offset by mandated increases in banks'
required reserves.
