July 5 (Reuters) – Key euro-priced bank-to-bank lending rates hit their highest levels in 10 months on Monday, days after banks paid back 442 billion euros to the European Central Bank.
The three-month Euribor rate EURIBOR3MD= — traditionally the main gauge of interbank euro lending and a mix of interest rate expectations and banks’ appetite for lending — climbed to 0.793 percent from 0.790 percent the previous day, the highest level since early September.
Shorter-term one-week rates EURIBORSWD= hit 0.456 percent from 0.452 percent, the highest level this year, while six-month rates EURIBOR6MD= and one-year rates EURIBOR1YD= remained at 1.060 percent and 1.329 percent respectively.
Banks paid back 442 billion euros worth of one-year loans to the ECB on Thursday and reborrowed just over half in shorter-term maturities, reducing the overall amount of liquidity in the system.
Euribor rates are fixed daily by the Banking Federation of the European Union (FBE) shortly after 0900 GMT.
