Chinese banks extended 663.2 billion yuan (about 100 billion U.S. dollars) of new loans in October, while broad money supply growth also accelerated, central bank data showed Monday.

New yuan-denominated loans in October increased by 11.9 billion yuan from September, the People's Bank of China said in an online statement.

The narrower measure of money supply (M1), which covers cash in circulation plus demand deposits, rose 13 percent year on year to 52.6 trillion yuan at the end of October.

New loans made to non-financial enterprises and government institutions hit 214.2 billion yuan in October, indicating credit demand from the real economy.

Medium to long-term loans, mainly consisting of personal housing mortgages, added 371 billion yuan in October.

By the end of October, outstanding yuan loans grew 13 percent from a year earlier to 118.42 trillion yuan.
