US dollar and Chinese yuan News

 

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the USD vs CNY, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

 

US dollar (USD)

The dollar ended last week falling to 1 Month lows. Risk sentiment tilted towards higher risk assets and currencies as US data showed strong signs of growth in several key sectors of the economy. Low US Treasury yields of 1.7% make the dollar less attractive in comparison to other investments. USD Markets

 

Chinese yuan (CNY)

The Chinese yuan appreciated 6 percent in 2020, which is prompting 'south bound' equity purchases on the Hong Kong share market.

Westpac see 10% growth in China this year with a corresponding positive impact on the iron ore price and commodity linked currencies such as AUD. NAB told Bloomberg TV that it sees a recovery in Asian currencies if the coronavirus comes under control.

In early August the offshore yuan surged to a decade high of 7.05 per US dollar, breaking the symbolic and closely watched USD/CNY = 7.0 exchange rate, after the trade war flared up again and the US labelled China a "currency manipulator".

Increasingly, the yuan is being used as a barometer for progress made on US-China trade talks.

Trade tensions have ramped up again since May when President Trump announced higher tariffs on Chinese goods, after China retaliated with tariffs of its own, and then after Trump placed Huawei on the "entity list," thereby making it impossible for the tech giant to do business with US firms.

How to get Good USD to CNY Exchange Rates

There are two important ways to save on Foreign Exchange, the first is minimising unnecessary or excessive costs and fees, and the other is to transact when the exchange rate is in your favour.

Reduce Excessive costs and fees

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

The transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.

What is a good USD to CNY exchange rate?

Will the US dollar rise against the Chinese yuan?

It is almost impossible to predict what an exchange rate will do in the future, the best approach is to monitor the currency markets and transact when an exchange rate moves in your favour.
