Reuters - ** The Sri Lankan rupee and the main stock index ended little changed on Friday after the central bank surprisingly reduced commercial banks’ statutory reserve ratio (SRR) by 100 basis points with effect from March 1, market sources said. ** Sri Lanka’s central bank reduced commercial banks’ statutory reserve ratio (SRR) by 100 basis points on Friday before the markets open in a surprise move to increase liquidity and spur credit growth as policymakers struggle to boost a faltering economic growth following a political crisis and a recent rate increase. ** The rupee ended at 179.40/80, compared with Thursday’s close of 179.45/65. ** The local currency posted a loss of 0.4 percent this week after a similar dive in the previous week due to high dollar demand from importers and outflows from the stock market. ** The rupee climbed 1.8 percent so far this year as exporters converted dollars and foreign investors purchased government securities amid stabilising investor confidence in Sri Lanka after the country repaid a $1 billion sovereign bond in mid-January. ** The bond market saw inflows of 3.3 billion rupees in the week ended Feb. 13, recording its fourth straight weekly inflow, the latest central bank data showed. ** Worries over heavy debt repayment after a 51-day political crisis that resulted in a series of credit rating downgrades dented investor sentiment as the country is struggling to repay its foreign loans. ** Sri Lanka has raised its borrowing limit for dollar-denominated bonds to $3 billion and chosen seven lead managers to tap the international market as soon as possible, three government sources said on Tuesday. ** The rupee dropped 16 percent in 2018, and was one of the worst-performing currencies in Asia due to heavy foreign outflows. ** The Colombo Stock Exchange index ended 0.02 percent weaker at 5,837.72 on Friday, its lowest close since Oct. 26, and marked its fifth straight session of declines. ** The benchmark index dropped 1.6 percent during the week, recording its third straight weekly fall. It declined about 1 percent in January. ** The turnover was 489.3 million rupees ($2.73 million), near a half of last year’s daily average of 834 million rupees. ** Foreign investors were net sellers of 300.2 million rupees worth of shares on Friday, extending the year-to-date net foreign outflow to 5.5 billion rupees worth of stocks, and 18.9 billion rupees since the political crisis began on Oct. 26, 2018.
