In recent trade today, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) set the yuan mid-point at 6.5376 vs the last close of 6.5475 and this was the weakest level since Jan 4, 2021.
About the fix

CNY differs from its offshore yuan, or CNH, which is not as tightly controlled as the onshore yuan.
Each morning, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) sets a so-called daily midpoint fix, based on the yuan’s previous day closing level and quotations taken from the inter-bank dealer.
