A huge requirement of foreign currencies is expected on Chinese New Year that falls on Feb. 8; however, that will not create wild impact on Yuan, as the government has taken necessary measures.

The midpoint rate has been set at 6.5516 per dollar, which is 0.02 percent stronger than the previous fix. Apart from this, several domestic funds are asked to keep on hold and plans for new outbound investments. This is being viewed as an initiative to keep the Yuan further stronger.
