In earlier  trade today, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) set the yuan, (USD/CNY), mid-point  at 6.3811 (est 6.3798; prev 6.3773).

The start of the weeks fix was the strongest since May 17  2018.

About the fix

China maintains strict control of the yuan’s rate on the mainland.

CNY differs from its offshore  yuan, or CNH, which is not as tightly controlled as the onshore yuan.

Each morning, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) sets a so-called daily midpoint fix, based on the yuan’s previous day closing level and quotations taken from the inter-bank dealer.
