CNH continued to underperform against peers amidst US-China Trade Wars

  • Donald Trump pressed on his aggressive approach to global trade, slapping steep tariffs on billions of imports, in particular with China.
  • The US-China trade talks in Washington ended without breaking ground, and with additional tariffs promised ahead, the deadlock remained.
  • CNH remained soft despite PBOC’s measures to make overnight funding expensive (hence costlier for speculative accounts to short CNH). USDCNH traded to just shy of 6.96 before the weight of US dollar led to some consolidation back around 6.85.
