China | 2023 RMB Exchange Rate Outlook

RMB to USD exchange rate has cumulatively depreciated by 8% in 2023, amid expectation change of the US FED hike path. Look forward, we predict RMB to go back to around 7-7.1 at end-2023 and 6.7 at end-2024.

Key points

  • Key points:
  • The recent sharp RMB depreciation by accumulately 8% has raised lots of market concerns.
  • The underlying reasons for depreciation, chief among them, is the expectation change of the US FED interest rate hike path and unsynchronized China-US monetary policy.
  • Domestic macro fundamentals also count, such as economic recovery came to a halt in Q2, shrinking current account and escalating geopolitical issues, etc.
  • However, RMB will not go one-way depreciation for long, which will reverse after FED finishes its possible another 2 hikes and starts the rate cut cycle.
  • In addition, the PBoC has many counter-cyclical tools to avoid one-way depreciation and RMB exchange rate sell-off.
