Reuters quotes three traders, as saying that the Chinese state-owned banks swapped Yuan for dollars in forwards on Tuesday, in an attempt to stem the declines in the Chinese currency.

The Yuan trades at a decade low versus the greenback, as market fret the USD/CNY could soon reach the 7.0000 level.

The traders said there was no immediate evidence that the banks were selling the dollars to support the value of spot Yuan  against the dollar. Two traders said they suspected the state-run banks were stockpiling dollars for future use.
