Chinese Yuan Notes

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 . The CFETS RMB Index measures the value of yuan against a basket of 13 major currencies, with weights based on international trade and has an end-2014 base year. The USD accounts for the largest share (26.4 percent), followed by the euro (accounting for 21.4 percent) and the yen (14.7 percent). The index also includes the currencies of Hong Kong, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland, Canada, Malaysia, Russia and Thailand.
