SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China’s central bank said it will skip open market operations on Wednesday as liquidity levels in the banking system were “relatively high”.

On a net basis, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) will drain 20 billion yuan ($3.18 billion) from the market for the day as the same amount in reverse repos is due to expire on Wednesday.

The PBOC drained a net 10 billion yuan from the money market last week.
