In the past month, the change in the middle price of *** against the US dollar was closely related to the performance of the US dollar index in the international market.

A member of a state-owned bank told reporters that the middle price of *** recently hit a new high after a series of consecutive corrections. This may be because the decision-makers intend to dispel the market's expectation of unilateral volatility, so they think that *** The trend of the middle price may be corrected again.

The market has little reaction to the consecutive high prices of ***. The above traders stated that there has been no need for too many foreign exchange settlements and sales transactions recently. Yesterday the *** against the US dollar closed at 6.7618 on the domestic spot market.

In the NDF (overseas non-deliverable forward market) market, the one-year USD/NDF price index was reported to be 6.6441, down from last week's closing price of 6.6555, indicating that overseas markets believe that *** will be against the US dollar after one year.

Analysts believe that the newly released Chinese trade data should help reduce the pressure on the appreciation of ***. Last Friday’s data showed that China’s exports rose by 34.4% year-on-year in August and 32.9% after the seasonally adjusted increase, which was a slower-than-expected 38.1% increase. China’s trade surplus in August was US$ 20.03 billion, not only lower than the 287 in July. The billion US dollars is also far less than the 30 billion US dollars that economists expected.

Due to the correction of exports, analysts believe that the appreciation rate of *** against the U.S. dollar is expected to increase by a maximum of 1.0% to 1.5% year-on-year. The new exchange rate policy that can be expected in the future should be a further increase in the fluctuation of U.S. dollar against the U.S. dollar.
