The People's Bank of China injected 100 bil yuan (US$14.95 bil) in seven-day reverse repos, the largest daily injection of the liquidity tool through open market operations into the banking system since 31 March to relieve pressure from rising cash demand toward the end of the first half of the year.

Korean won The won up 0.93% to 1286.39. Indicators including sentiment and outlook, are looking increasingly gloomy in South Korea due to financial market volatility, high inflation, higher lending rates, and depreciating currency.

Australian dollar The Australian dollar depreciated 0.27% to 0.693. The Australian government plans to target large manufacturers to keep emissions below an agreed limit as Australia reported carbon emissions rose nearly by 1% due to Covid-19 restriction lifts in 2021.
