the Loan Prime Rate (LPR) as the new lending standard for new bank loans to households and businesses, effectively displacing the central bank's one-year lending rate as the new lending benchmark it was declared on August 17th, 2019, by the People's Bank of China (PBOC). The rate is based on a weighted average of loan rates submitted by 18 commercial banks to the national interbank financing center by 9:00 a.m. CST on the 20th of each month, based on what they have bid for PBOC liquidity in open market operations.

A higher than expected figure should be seen as positive (bullish) for the CNY while a lower than expected figure should be seen as negative (bearish) for the CNY.
