Chinese Yuan Flat Amid Disappointing PMIs, PBoC FX Intervention

The Chinese yuan was trading relatively flat against its US peer in the middle of the first trading week of 2021. The yuan, which has been on a tear over the last nine months, broke through the 6.5 resistance level earlier this week as the currency continues its impressive appreciation. But disappointing economic data and foreign exchange intervention may slow down the yuan’s surge.

Australian Dollar Starts Year on Strong Footing

The Australian dollar traded mostly higher against its most-traded rivals on the back of the positive market sentiment. Traders looked into the future with optimism thanks to expectations of coronavirus vaccine rollouts and the subsequent recovery of the global economy. A manufacturing report for China, Australia’s biggest trading partner, missed expectations but it did not seem to have a material impact on markets, perhaps because the data was not outright bad.

Chinese Yuan Slumps in Year-End Session As PMI, Liquidity Injection Weigh on Markets

The Chinese yuan is slumping against the US dollar on the final trading session of 2020. Despite being one of the top-performing currencies in global foreign exchange markets, the yuan is finishing 2020 slightly lower on disappointing manufacturing and non-manufacturing data and the central bank injecting liquidity into the banking system.

NZ Dollar Firm on Risk Appetite & Positive Domestic Data

The New Zealand dollar was trading in the green today, rising against the majority of most-traded currencies, except for the Australian dollar and the Great Britain pound. The kiwi rallied because the market sentiment seemed to favor riskier currencies. Domestic macroeconomic data was positive, while reports in China, New Zealand’s biggest trading partner, were mixed.

Chinese Yuan Pauses Rally Amid Escalating Sino-US Tensions

The Chinese yuan retreated from its best level in more than two years to kick off the trading week, driven mostly on escalating Sino-US geopolitical and trade tensions. But the pullback was capped by better-than-expected exports in November, signaling that the world’s second-largest economy is recovering at a healthy pace.

Australian Dollar Stable After Economic Releases in Australia & China

Chinese Yuan Shrugs Off Report Joe Biden Will Not Remove Tariffs on China

The Chinese yuan is shrugging off a report that President-Elect Joe Biden would not immediately remove the higher tariffs placed on the world’s second-largest economy. The yuan, which has been one of the top-performing currencies in foreign exchange markets, maintained its upward trajectory as it looks to test 6.5 against its US peer.

Australian Dollar Mixed After RBA Meeting, China’s Manufacturing PMI

The Australian dollar did not show a clear trend today. The Reserve Bank of Australia left its monetary policy unchanged at its last policy meeting this year, as was widely expected. China’s macroeconomic data was helpful to the Australian currency.
