The pre-holiday trade volume between the yuan and the dollar has seen a significant drop, causing disruption to the usual daily average. Trading volumes have fallen to between $10 billion and $12 billion, a sharp decrease from the typical $30 billion daily average.
This reduction in trade comes as markets are set to close for an extended period, remaining shut until October 9. The drop in trading volumes is likely due to market participants winding down activities ahead of the holiday period.
The impact of this reduced activity is yet to be fully understood, but it signifies a notable shift in market dynamics as we head into the holiday period. The reopening of markets on October 9 will provide further insight into the potential effects of this disruption.
