Yuan Rates

- The spread between the offshore Yuan and the onshore Yuan narrowed to around 240 pips as of 12:55pm EST; the offshore Yuan remained stronger than the onshore Yuan. Yesterday, the USD/CNH moved towards the PBOC’s guided level, with the Yuan losing -0.51% against its U.S. counterpart. Despite of the offshore Yuan’s weakness, the PBOC lowered the Yuan fix further on Wednesday, by -245 pips or -0.36%. This indicates that from the regulator’s point of view, the offshore Yuan may still be too strong. As a result, more reversals could be seen in the offshore rate over the following days.

Major Yuan Indicators

- China’s current account had a surplus of 257.6 billion Yuan in the fourth quarter of 2016, while the capital and financial account turned to a deficit of 257.6 billion Yuan. Over the entire 2016, China’s current account had a surplus of 1.3950 trillion Yuan and the capital and financial account had a deficit of 318.3 billion Yuan.

The capital account measures the net position of a nation’s financial assets held by foreigners. A deficit in the capital account means that the country held more foreign assets than the other way around. Since the second half of 2014, the direction of capital flows in China has changed from inbound to outbound, with the country’s capital and financial account turning into negative. This could be led by two factors: foreign institutions reducing investment in China amid a weaker Yuan and Chinese investors seeking overseas opportunities amid a lack of domestic opportunities.

- China’s 10-year government bond yield rose to 3.497% on February 6th, the highest level since August 2015, following the PBOC’s lending rate hikes. One of the main purposes of raising shorter-term rates is to curb the high leverage in longer-term bonds. Chinese investors used cheap short-term borrowing to purchase longer-term bonds, such as 5-year and 10-year Chinese government bonds. Such purchases had driven up bond prices and sent bond yields to record lows: Last August, the yield of Chinese 10-year government bond fell to 2.656%, the lowest level since the end of 2008.

Amid tightened liquidity of recent, investors holding long-term bonds with high leverage, may have had to sell their bonds in the effort to maintain sufficient cash. Such selling would lead to dropping prices and rising yields.

On Wednesday, the PBOC continued the suspension on liquidity injections through open market operations, a further move to reduce liquidity. Within such context, more selling in long-term bonds could be seen over the following periods.
