Sri Lanka money rates spike

Dec 16, 2011 (LBO) - Sri Lanka's overnight money rates spiked Friday amid liquidity shortages from peg defence and seasonal demand, prompting a 10 billion rupee cash auction by monetary authorities, dealers said.

Overnight gilt backed repos rose as much as 8.35 percent and eased to 7.75/8.00 percent levels after a cash injection through a reverse repo auction was announced, up from an average of 7.

In December however there is also a seasonal cash demand of about 10 billion rupees or more due to an increase in the money-in-circulation component of reserve money. Since active sterilized interventions began two months ago the Central Bank's Treasuries portfolio has risen to 141 billion rupees from below a billion rupees, which is indicative of an broadly similar loss in foreign assets.

The liquidity injections create more pressure on the currency peg, analysts have warned.

The Indian rupee has also come under pressure from sterilized interventions, and the finance ministry has urged the Reserve Bank of India to halt interventions.

In debt markets a bond maturing in 2015 was quoted around 9.
