Trump effect: the yuan has appreciated by 2.10% against the greenback so far this year

China’s foreign exchange reserves rose for the fourth consecutive month in May, as tight capital controls and a weaker US dollar helped to stem outflows from the mainland.

Figures published on June 7, by the People’s Bank of China (PBoC), show FX reserves increased by $24 billion to $3.054 trillion at the end of May – up from $3.03 trillion in April and higher than the forecast of $3.046 trillion expected by analysts.

May’s data represents the fourth straight monthly increase in FX reserves
