How does the US dollar trade against the Chinese yuan renminbi historically?
From January 1994 to May 2006, the US dollar traded at around 8 CNY. Between 2000 and mid-2006, its value fluctuated within a margin of less than 0.30 CNY — from 8 CNY to 8.27 CNY. The US dollar fell under the 8 CNY mark to trade at 7.998 CNY in June 2006. The Chinese yuan then began to gain ground, and by the end of 2006 the US dollar was valued at 7.812 CNY.
Signs of China’s improving economy were plain to see by 2006. By 2008, the US subprime crisis had affected our economy, but the Chinese economy showed no sign of slowing. While the dollar remained over the 7 CNY mark until March 2008, it was valued at 6.992 CNY in April 2008.
A recovering economy saw the US dollar stabilize against most major currencies. While the Chinese yuan continued its upward trend, the pace was not particularly noteworthy. In April 2008, it continued to rise in value against the US dollar, and by May 2011 the US dollar traded at slightly less than 6.5 CNY. Signs of economic stabilization were visible by December 2012, at which point the dollar valued at 6.286 CNY.
The slow upward trend of the Chinese yuan continued for a few more months, and the US dollar traded at 6.098 CNY in January 2014. By then, the US economy was buoyed by a rise in consumer confidence and consumption as well as an increase in the employment rate. After a spell of dominance, the CNY fell by around 2%, with the dollar trading at 6.129 CNY in December 2014.
An early 2015 Goldman Sachs report predicted strong growth in the economy through 2017, which led to the US dollar gaining ground against most currencies. By April 2015 the dollar was valued at 6.095 CNY, around which it stayed until July 2015. In August 2015, the Chinese yuan increased in value slightly to trade against the dollar at 6.317 CNY.
