The Chinese yuan is strengthening against multiple currency counterparts midweek following a bullish forecast by a Wall Street titan.

USD/CNY Climbs Back Above 7 As Trump Reveals US-China Trade Deal Not a Priority

The Chinese yuan is holding steady at the end of the trading week, despite President Donald Trump revealing that the second phase of a US-China trade agreement is no longer a top priority.

Euro Falls on Weak Sentiment Amid Rising US Coronavirus Cases

The euro today fell against the US dollar driven by investor fears about the rising coronavirus cases across the US triggering a selloff of riskier assets such as the euro.

Overall, markets were in a positive mood, favoring high-beta currencies. Surprisingly, that did not result in a total sell-off of the Japanese currency. The yen fared rather well, holding its ground against most of its rivals and even gaining on some of them.

The Sterling pound today fell against the US dollar as investors bought the safe-haven greenback in anticipation of further stimulus spending by the government.

Chinese Yuan Strengthens on Expanding Manufacturing Activity

The Chinese yuan is strengthening against several Western currencies on Monday, driven by a better-than-expected private sector survey of manufacturing in the world’s second-largest economy.

As many analysts anticipate another down year for the yuan, could a renewed trade dispute slam the offshore currency?

US Dollar Unfazed by Trump’s WHO, China Announcements

The US dollar was unfazed by President Donald Trump’s press conference on Friday. Global financial markets were on edge as many speculated drastic actions would be taken by the administration regarding China over trade and the situation in Hong Kong. Instead, the announcements were just confirmations of previous reports about his response to the World Health Organization (WHO) and Beijing.

Chinese Yuan Slips as US Threatens Sanctions on China Over Hong Kong

The Chinese yuan is extending its losses to jumpstart the holiday-shortened trading week. The currency is falling against its rivals on Monday after the White House threatened to slap sanctions on China over the government’s proposed implementation of national security laws on Hong Kong that reportedly threaten its autonomy.
