More Competitive CNH Opens Door To New Possibilities

The Danish broker is most well known for its extensive forex offering, having recently reported sagging volumes this past March. With fresh expansive measures already taking place in Abu Dhabi, the new Renminbi offering looks to capture a growing market. The announcement comes at an interesting time indeed, given the dual waning of both the onshore and offshore Renminbi (CNY and CNH respectively), along with an augmented trading band of the CNY to 2%. As such, the greater competitiveness fostered by the Renminbi has certainly allowed more latitude by forex traders looking to begin trading the bourgeoning currency.
Presently, Saxo Bank’s clients have access to a CNH spot offering against a suite of currencies. However this new move clearly presents a multitude of new forex strategies and overall potential. According to Elizabeth Missfeld, FX Product Manager at Saxo Bank in a statement on the new offering, “the USDCNH is our clients’ opportunity to benefit from actions in China. With the recent further band widening, China is implementing its plan to further internationalize the Yuan, and I am glad that our clients can now also take part in volatility trades in the Chinese offshore market.”
