China lowers yuan daily reference rate

China’s central bank cut the yuan’s reference rate by the largest amount in over 20 years, according to media reports. The bank lowered the yuan’s daily reference rate by 1.9%, the largest daily drop the currency recorded since China’s unification of official and market exchange rates in January 1994. The government reportedly stated that this was only a one-time adjustment and it is expected to help the market balance the reference rate itself. The central bank’s recent decision hinted at a possible shift towards a more market-based financial system in China.

Following the adjustment, the yuan declined 1.8% to 6.32 per dollar in Shanghai. In addition, the adjustment started to show its effects across markets as the yuan weakened against other currencies.
