Features of Chinese yuan trade
The Chinese yuan is a very specific currency, due to the fact that the PRC is a communist country, and the People’s Bank of China is fully regulated by the PRC government. As a result, the Chinese yuan is tightly controlled by the People’s Bank of China, which does not allow it to move beyond the People’s Bank of China established range.
Also, due to these restrictions from the People’s Bank of China, there are concepts of “offshore yuan” (CNH) and “onshore yuan” (CNY). In fact, this is the same currency, but the offshore yuan (CNH) is traded on the FOREX market, when the onshore yuan (CNY) is traded only in China and can be controlled by the People’s Bank of China. At the same time, both currencies have unidirectional dynamics because of their nature. Therefore, intervention against the onshore yuan (CNY) also affects the offshore yuan (CNH).
Since the People’s Bank of China does not benefit from a strong national currency for economic growth, the Chinese yuan remains under pressure beyond a soft monetary policy, which is responsible for the general upward trend of the USD/CNH pair.
Due to the fact that China is the world leader in exports, the trade conflict between the US and China has also tough on the Chinese yuan, which makes the yuan very vulnerable to such conflicts and data on the deterioration in trade or political relations.
