Chinese yuan drops as zero-Covid policy continues to dent data

Recommended Posts

China trade data shows that exports and imports have both fallen for the first time since May 2020. China’s zero-Covid policy is widely expected to be behind the numbers which have seen the Chinese yuan drop.

Imports and exports fall

For the first time since May 2020, China's exports and imports simultaneously fell as the country's zero-Covid policy continues to bite.

Exports unexpectedly declined by a margin of 0.3% from this time last year, after a 5.7% gain in September. That was well below analyst expectations for a 4.3% increase. It was the first annual decline since May 2020.

Also, imports declined 0.7%, from a 0.3% gain in September on a 0.1% increase forecast.

Now, the overall trade figures resulted in a trade surplus of $85.15 billion, missing forecasts of $95.95 billion.


I want to show you what's happening with the Chinese yuan. This is the dollar against the yuan. So this rising market that we've got here, these are 30-minute candles, is the US dollar winning out against that Chinese yuan.

I think much of what's been happening with the Chinese economy and also the Chinese yuan has been all about the zero-Covid policy which has brought about these numbers today.

You can see in the session this has been this big gap up. This was the Friday close down here on the 4th of November. Then you have this big gap up for the US dollar. And when we saw the release of these figures, we saw a further rise in the US dollar against the Chinese yuan.

This is the offshore Chinese yuan and is tradable on the IG platform. I want to show you the daily candle, just to show you what happened. This drop on Friday for the US dollar, it was all about the dollar and trade around non-farm payrolls. It hit this line of support at 71 654. Today we've seen that rise in the dollar as a result of this economic data in the Chinese economy.

    • The "best" percentage of your investment portfolio to allocate to cryptocurrencies depends on your individual financial situation, risk tolerance, investment goals, and time horizon. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as what's appropriate for one person may not be suitable for another. Here are some considerations to help you determine the right percentage for your situation: Risk Tolerance: Cryptocurrencies are known for their price volatility. Consider how comfortable you are with the possibility of significant price fluctuations. Generally, if you have a lower risk tolerance, you may allocate a smaller percentage to cryptocurrencies. Financial Goals: Your investment goals play a crucial role in determining your crypto allocation. Are you investing for short-term gains, long-term growth, or a specific financial milestone (e.g., retirement)? The time horizon for your goals can influence your crypto allocation. Diversification: Diversification is a risk management strategy that involves spreading your investments across different asset classes. Diversifying your portfolio can help reduce risk. Experts often recommend not putting all your funds into a single investment, including cryptocurrencies. The specific percentage you allocate to crypto should consider the diversity of your overall portfolio. Knowledge and Research: Your understanding of cryptocurrencies matters. If you're well-versed in the crypto space and have confidence in your ability to evaluate and manage crypto investments, you might allocate a higher percentage. However, if you're new to cryptocurrencies, it's wise to start with a smaller allocation until you gain more experience. Financial Situation: Consider your current financial situation, including your income, expenses, and existing investments. Ensure that you have an emergency fund and meet your other financial obligations before allocating a significant portion to cryptocurrencies. Regulatory and Tax Considerations: Be aware of the regulatory and tax implications of cryptocurrency investments in your jurisdiction. Tax laws regarding cryptocurrencies can vary significantly, and it's essential to comply with them. Asset Allocation Strategy: Many financial experts recommend following a structured asset allocation strategy based on your risk tolerance and investment goals. This strategy might suggest a certain percentage for different asset classes, including stocks, bonds, real estate, and cryptocurrencies. Regular Review: Periodically review and rebalance your portfolio to ensure it aligns with your goals and risk tolerance. Cryptocurrency prices can change rapidly, so your allocation may need adjustments over time. Ultimately, there is no universally "best" percentage to invest in cryptocurrencies. It's a highly individual decision that should be made based on your unique circumstances and objectives. It's also important to conduct thorough research and consider seeking advice from a financial advisor or investment professional before making any significant changes to your investment portfolio.
