Chinese Yuan Devaluation Creates Trading Opportunities

Today in forex trading Yuan (CNY) was allowed to appreciate 2% against the US Dollar (USD). This move by the People’s bank of China was due to the recent economic slowdown there, but was still very sudden and unexpected. This was the biggest one day drop in the value of the Yuan in 20 years.This devaluation caused a strong reaction in the forex market. Devaluing the Yuan against the US Dollar by 2% is hoped to boost the Chinese economy.

Most of the price movement and opportunities for forex traders today resulting from the devaluation of the Yuan was based in currencies in the same region like the Australian Dollar (AUD and New Zealand Dollar (NZD).  The AUD and NZD both tumbled, but the Euro (EUR) strengthened overnight, producing strong movements in the EUR/AUD and EUR/NZD. The EUR/CAD and moved up strong as all commodity based currencies reacted to the devaluation news. As you can see below, the trading opportunities on the AUD pairs alone was significant. The Forex Heatmap® indicated buy signals on the EUR/AUD, EUR/NZD and EUR/CAD for intra-day or longer term buys, as these pairs are in uptrends. This is a valuable lesson on how forex news and global events can bring profits to any trader who uses this type of real time signal system.
