The offshore yuan which trades outside the Chinese mainland has been trading above 7 per USD since February 18th, a level not seen since early December, due to concerns about the coronavirus impact on the economy. The IMF recently warned that the virus epidemic will likely drag down China's GDP growth to 5.6% this year although the central bank has been cutting key borrowing rates and injecting money into the financial system, in an attempt to to support the economy. 7 per USD is a key psychological level and seems to be an inflection point for the currency. The yuan strengthen in early December as trade tensions between the US and China eased.

Historically, the Chinese Yuan reached an all time high of 8.73 in January of 1994.

The Chinese Yuan is expected to trade at 7.03 by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations. Looking forward, we estimate it to trade at 7.11 in 12 months time.

Chinese Yuan
The USDCNY exchange rate is a reference rate not used in actual currency trading. When investors or entities want to exchange dollars for the Chinese currency, they do so using the USDCNH exchange rate set in Hong Kong. The People's Bank of China sets the yuan's mid-point rate and the onshore yuan (USDCNY) is allowed to trade 2% higher or lower than the PBoC’s central reference rate. The offshore yuan (USDCNH) which trades outside the mainland is not controlled. The USDCNY and the USDCNH are not very different and usually trade less than a few cents apart. China's Foreign Exchange Trade System published a new yuan index, on December 11th, 2015 including 13 currencies and extended it on January 1st 2017 to 24. The CFETS RMB Index measures the value of yuan against a basket of 24 major currencies, with weights based on international trade and has an end-2014 base year. The USD accounts for the largest share (22.4 percent), followed by the euro (accounting for 16.3 percent) and the yen (11.5 percent). The index also includes the currencies of Hong Kong, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland, Canada, Malaysia, Russia, Thailand, South Africa, South Korea, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Hungary, Poland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Turkey and Mexico. .
