Net new yuan loans by Chinese banks plunged to RMB513.6 billion (US$80.69 billion) in October from RMB1.05 trillion in September as total social financing – a measurement of net credit in the economy – fell to RMB476.7 billion in October from RMB1.3 trillion in September, South China Morning Post reported, citing the People’s Bank of China.
