China Stocks Climb, Yuan Rises Past Key Level on Reopening Shift
(Bloomberg) — Chinese equities rose and the yuan jumped past the closely watched 7-per-dollar level for the first time since September, as authorities accelerated a shift toward reopening the economy.
The onshore yuan surged more than 1% to 6.9678 per dollar, the strongest since Sept. 15, while the Hang Seng China Enterprises Index rallied as much as 4%. Property firms’ dollar bonds also rose as financial hub Shanghai and neighboring Hangzhou eased some Covid curbs following recent protests against the nation’s stringent policies.
