Chinese Yuan Appreciates To More Than 1-year High Against U.S. Dollar

09/01/2020 - 00:13:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - The Chinese yuan firmed against the U.S. dollar in the Asian session on Tuesday, after a private survey showed that China's manufacturing activity expanded in August at the fastest pace since January 2011.

Survey from Caixin showed that manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index rose to 53.1 from 52.8 in July.

The data indicated signs of economic recovery from the pandemic.

The yuan rose to 6.8185 against the greenback, its highest level since May 2019. The next possible resistance for the yuan is seen around the 6.7 level.

The People's Bank of China set today's central parity rate of the yuan at 6.8498 per dollar, compared to Monday's rate of 6.8605. The Chinese central bank sets central parity rate every morning and allows the yuan to fluctuate up to 2 percent from that level.
