Weekly Fundamental Forecast for USD/CNH (based on the article)


USD/CNH"Two major event risks from China’s counterpart is Fed’s February rate decision on Wednesday and the U.S. January Non-farm Payroll (NFP) print on Friday. The USD/CNH has been retracing within a range after the offshore Yuan strengthened to a two-month high. Within such a context, moves from the U.S. side may give out more clues on the next trend for the Dollar/Yuan. For Fed’s release on Wednesday, the benchmark interest rates will likely remain unchanged, with an odds of only 12% of a rate hike. There will be no updates on economic forecasts and no press conference from Chair Yellen; the major focus will be on the sentiment in Fed’s minutes. Also, the January U.S. labor market report is expected to heavily weigh on the Dollar/Yuan after China’s onshore markets reopens. Two weeks ago, Yellen addressed on positive development in the labor market. If the NFP print on Friday came in stronger, it will provide more support to the U.S. Dollar."

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for USD/CNH (based on the article)


USD/CNH"One of the most important events for the NPC conference will be Premier Li Keqiang’s government work report. This will be delivered at the opening day of the NPC meetings. Economic growth and CPI targets for 2017 are expected to be released in this report. Another key measure to be released in the report is the fiscal deficit ratio, which reflects China’s fiscal policy. China’s Central Bank has been tightening liquidity in the effort to bring monetary policy back to neutral, from slightly loose. Within such context, the country may have to reply more on fiscal policy to stimulate the economy. In the annual Central Economic Work Conference held in December 2016, policymakers told that China will adopt a more proactive fiscal policy."

Though modest overall, the latest improvement was the joint-second strongest for just over four years."
  • "Companies continued to report lower staff numbers in February, as has been the case in each month since November 2013. That said, the rate of job shedding was the slowest seen for two years. Higher new orders and lower staffing levels contributed to a modest rise in unfinished business in February."

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for USD/CNH (based on the article)


USD/CNH"The New Yuan loans, a major indicator that may impact the PBOC’s monetary policy, is expected to drop to 920 billion Yuan in February from 2.030 trillion Yuan in the month prior, the second-highest level on record. In order to curb excess liquidity flowing into the housing market and other financial markets, the PBOC has been delicately managing its cash injections through open market operations. The Central Bank withdrew a net of 280 billion Yuan this week and has been removing liquidity from markets for the seventh consecutive trading days. The regulator targets to bring monetary policy back to neutral from slightly loose. Total new credit issued, home loans and property prices are three key gauges that the regulator may use to evaluate whether monetary policy has returned to neutral."
