USDCNH Analysis: Yuan Rebound Likely to be Tested Soon

USDCNH Analysis: Yuan Rebound Likely to be Tested Soon

Nick Cawley, Strategist

USDCNH Price, News and Technical Analysis

  • Chinese Yuan remains weak as US trade wars weigh
  • US dollar likely to get a short-term boost if Q2 GDP expectations are correct.

The DailyFX Q3 Forecasts have just been released and cover all the major asset classes.

USDCNY May Move Higher as EU-US Trade Tensions Ease

The recent small rebound in USDCNY is likely to come under pressure again after the EU and the US eased fears of an all-out trade war yesterday and said that they would work together to address unfair trading practices. Both parties said that they would work towards zero tariffs and trade barriers for non-auto goods with the US adding that they will consider dropping recent tariffs on steel and aluminium. A cessation of trade hostilities between the two giant blocks and the talk of coordinating action against ‘unfair trading practices’ leaves China under the microscope of two of its largest trading counterparties at a time when growth is seen slowing, although not officially.

US - China Trade War Primer

The current US dollar – offshore Chinese Yuan rate is stuck between two Fibonacci levels at 6.6990 and 6.8250 after the recent heavy Yuan sell-off. A weaker CNH continues to counter-balance recent US trade tariffs and further weakness may occur if the US presses ahead with their recently touted $500 billion target of Chinese goods and services. US President Trump remains annoyed about the overly-weak level of CNH, which distorts trade in China’s favour, and may feel even more empowered now that the EU is seemingly on the same page as the US. USDCNY is likely to stay stuck between the two Fibonacci levels in the short-term but any further escalation of action and retaliation between China and the US will see bring resistance back into play.

USDCNH Analysis: Yuan Rebound Likely to be Tested Soon

I

nvestors will be looking at Friday’s US Q2 GDP figures with great interest with expectations of an upside beat of already high expecations (currently 4.3%). Market rumour, and it is just rumour, that POTUS has been talking about a very strong number has underpinned the US dollar, although the chart looks weak in the short-term. If growing expectations of a 4.5% to 5% print are met the dollar may push back above the 20- and 50-day moving averages, currently at 94.05 and 94.15.

DailyFX analyst Justin McQueen will be covering Friday’s US Q2 GDP release live from 13:15 BST (12:15 GMT)
