PBOC sets USD/ CNY central rate at 6.4749 (vs. estimate at 6.4755)

Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: Central Banks

People's Bank of China set the onshore yuan (CNY) reference rate for the trading session ahead.    

  • USD/CNY is permitted to trade plus or minus 2% from this daily reference rate.
  • CNH is the offshore yuan. USD/CNH has no restrictions on its trading range. 

  • The previous close was 6.4634
  • Reuters estimate was 6.4755. A significantly stronger or weaker rate than expected is typically considered a signal from the PBOC.  

So, no slashing of the CNY from the PBOC today ... do we read this as a sign of a shift down in concern from the authorities?
