Wednesday’s Factors and Events

The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) set the official midpoint reference for yuan at 6.9996 on Wednesday, just a hair away from the psychologically important 7-per-dollar level. The latest yuan fixing was slightly weaker-than-expected, keeping markets nervous about its intentions.

Beijing let the yuan breach that 7-per-dollar level for the first time in 11 years on Monday, shortly after President Donald Trump threatened to impose more tariffs.

This led to the biggest sell-off of the year on Wall Street. The Dow and S&P 500 dropped nearly 3% each while the Nasdaq Composite plummeted 3.5% on Monday. The major indexes cut some of those losses on Tuesday, rising more than 1% each.
