Key Quotes

“We expect this to put downward pressure on medium-term growth. We also see a rising risk of a trade war with the US, which would hurt Chinese exports. Against the EUR, we still expect the CNY to depreciate by around 10% on a12Mhorizon.”

“The CNH-CNY spread moved sharply into negative territory in early January as the CNH strengthened rapidly on the back of Chinese intervention in the offshore market, which led to a big capitulation of short CNH positions. After hitting zero again, it has then moved into negative territory recently. We expect it to fluctuate around zero in the long run.”
