  • USD/CNH trades at CNH6.4014 as we type, 39 pips higher on the day. Further gains past Oct 29 high of CNH6.4104 would expose Oct 19 high of CNH6.4290. On the flip side, a dip through Oct 25 low of CNH6.3748 would draw attention to Oct 19 low/trendline support at CNH6.3687/85.
  • Pres Xi Jinping told the audience at the China International Import Expo that Beijing is open to addressing some key points of tension with the U.S. and discussing subsidies to its industrial firms and state-owned companies. Elsewhere, Politico reported that Xi and Biden will likely agree to reopen consulates and ease visa restrictions.
