    SHANGHAI, Feb 26 (Reuters) - China's central bank will inject 150 billion yuan ($23.69 billion) into money markets on Monday, traders said.

    On a net basis, the PBOC will inject 150 billion yuan into the market via open market operations for the day, as there are no reverse repos due to mature on Monday.
