The spectacular hike in new yuan loans announced by the People's Bank of China, the central bank, to both the real economy and non-bank financing institutions such as brokerages, took the market by surprise, coming in at 1.48 trillion yuan ($238 billion) for July, a 14.4 percent rise over a year earlier.

Another gauge of lending, total social financing, failed to mirror the new yuan lending.
