Author: Saxo Bank
Saxo Bank, the specialist in online trading and investment,
today announced that the new USDCNH currency cross is now available on
its trading platforms. Clients of Saxo Bank will now be able to trade
the offshore Chinese renminbi against the US Dollar.
Streaming prices on ticket sizes up to USD 3 million will be available during
regular FX trading hours from 8am Mondays Sydney time to 5pm Fridays New York time.
Larger trade sizes will be available on a Request for Quote (RFQ) basis. The Margin
Requirement for the USDCNH is 8% and the minimum trade size is USD 5,000 notional.
The USDCNH will be available to all Saxo Bank's clients, including those of white
label clients, but will not be available to clients of Saxo Capital Markets HK.
Claus Nielsen, Head of Trading, Saxo Bank comments: "Over the past few years, the
Chinese government has allowed the renminbi to appreciate against the US Dollar, and
has gradually deregulated the currency's trading. CNH offers an important option to
take and manage renminbi risk and exposure to real investments and positive yield.
The development of the offshore renminbi CNH is integral to China's broader
strategic plans to internationalise and turn the renminbi into a viable reserve
"London, whose 37 per cent share of the global forex
market is twice the one of its nearest rival New York, has just been officially
approved by China as an offshore centre for trading renminbi. We expect USDCNH to
become an interesting trading currency for our clients in the future."
