China maintains benchmark lending rates at monthly fixing, meeting market expectations.
The one-year loan prime rate (LPR) remains at 3.55 percent, while the five-year LPR remains unchanged at 4.2 percent.
In a recent poll of 26 market analysts, all participants predicted no change to either rate.
Most new and existing loans in China are based on the one-year LPR, while the five-year rate influences mortgage pricing. China previously reduced both LPRs in June to stimulate the economy.
