The Chinese yuan is weakening against a handful of currency rivals on Thursday as the world’s two largest economies begin low-level trade negotiations in Washington.

A trade deal might be the only thing that saves the country.

Chinese Yuan Surges Despite Data Falling Short of Expectations

Chinese Yuan Rises Despite Weak Data, Interim Trade Deal Denial

The Chinese yuan is strengthening against major currency rivals on Thursday, which may surprise investors because of what has been transpiring toward the end of the trading week.

Chinese Yuan Weakens As Exports Fall, Capped by RRR Cut

The Chinese yuan is weakening to kick off the trading week, driven by a decline in August exports as the world’s second-largest economy continues its trade dispute with the US.

Chinese Yuan Gains vs. US Dollar on Surprisingly Good Manufacturing PMI, Loses Gains Later

The Chinese yuan rallied against the US dollar intraday but erased its gains by now.

The Chinese yuan is weakening against multiple currency rivals at the end of the trading week. The yuan’s slide is being driven by another escalation in the ongoing US-China trade spat.

Chinese Yuan Weakens As PBOC Introduces New Benchmark

The Chinese yuan is weakening on Tuesday after the central bank introduced a new lending benchmark as part of the nation’s market-oriented reforms and attempts to weather the economic trade winds.

Chinese Yuan Mixed on Weaker Industrial Output, Surging Home Prices

The Chinese yuan is having a mixed trading session against multiple currencies, driven by varied economic data. The biggest story for China was its July industrial production being worse than what the market had expected, though it was somewhat offset by soaring housing prices in the world’s second-largest economy. The yuan may not be able to strengthen against a basket of currencies until the trade war is finally over.

Chinese Yuan Strengthens on Strong Trade Data

The Chinese yuan is strengthening against most major currency rivals on Thursday after the federal government reported better-than-expected trade numbers.
