The yuan reappears the "incomprehensible" market

"Interest rate cut" as scheduled, the yuan did not fall under pressure as market expectations.On January 18, the highest onshore yuan against the dollar was 6.3381 since June 2018. On the same day, both the onshore and offshore yuan rates rose above 6.34, a new high in three-and-a-half years. Bicycle front reflector, pin and socket connectors and vga connector should be noted.

Since the second half of last year, both the RMB and the dollar have strengthened, stepping out of the independent market. " This seems incomprehensible, and it is more difficult to observe in the short term.

In the view of industry insiders, the reason why the recent RMB exchange rate is strong, and the end of the year at the strong demand for settlement is closely related."Even with a strong pullback expectation in the market, the yuan is likely to remain strong against the dollar in the first quarter.Because enterprises' strong willingness to settle foreign exchange before the Spring Festival has pushed up the demand for the RMB.”

On January 20, the central parity point of the yuan against the US dollar rose 139 basis points to 6.3485.
