- The PBOC set the yuan reference rate at 6.9510 - the highest level since January 2017.
- The weaker fix has likely bolstered the bullish chart setup: the pair has found acceptance above 6.9584 (August high) and the bullish breakout is backed by the ascending (bullish) 5-day and 10-day exponential moving averages (EMAs). The 14-day relative strength index (RSI) is biased bullish and is well short of the July high of 89.00.
- Over on the 4-hour chart, 50-, 100-, and 200-hour EMAs are trending north. The RSI is biased bullish and rising, having established a base around 50.00 in the last four weeks.
- The currency pair looks set to test the psychological level of 7.00. Watch out for a sudden bearish reversal from above 7.00, as the PBOC may intervene to halt the slide in the Chinese currency.
