Chinese banks are estimated to have issued 1.6 trillion yuan (US$247.37 billion) in net new yuan loans last month, down from 2.73 trillion yuan in March, according to the median estimate in the survey of 19 economists.AdvertisementAdvertisementThat would be slightly lower than 1.7 trillion yuan issued the same month a year earlier. headtopics.com
Annual outstanding yuan loans were expected to grow 12.5per cent for April, lower than 12.6per cent growth in March, the poll showed. Broad M2 money supply was expected to rise 9.3per cent in April from a year earlier, lower than 9.4per cent year-on-year growth in the previous month.
China's credit growths are being closely watched by investors who are increasingly worried about policy tightening as Beijing looks to exit from emergency measures now that the economy is quickly regaining traction.The surge in loans early this year has prompted regulators to tell banks to trim their loan books to guard against risks from bubbles in domestic financial markets, Reuters reported in March.

In April, TSF is expected to dip to 2.25 trillion yuan from 3.34 trillion yuan in March."We have already seen a more substantial pullback in other forms of borrowing," analysts with Capital Economics said in a note."Shadow credit has resumed its contraction in recent quarters. And there has been a sharp decline in government bond issuance, due to lower quotas for 2021, and corporate bond issuance, due to concerns about default risks amid reduced state support. headtopics.com
