SHANGHAI, Sept 8 (Reuters) - China's central bank said it will skip open market operations on Friday, as liquidity in the banking system was "relatively high". 

    For the week, the People's Bank of China (PBOC) will drain a net 330 billion yuan ($50.90 billion) from the market, compared with a net drain of 280 billion yuan a week earlier.

    The PBOC injected 298 billion yuan into the financial system via one-year medium-term lending facility (MLF) loans.
