Macro Comment China — CNY to be kept stable, but only in effective terms

We revise our USD/CNY forecast after seeing signs of Chinese authorities being less worried about CNY weakness, and on the back of revisions to our USD forecast. Our underlying view of a stable effective exchange rate is unchanged and we continue to expect a weakening of the CNY versus the USD in the short term, but a stronger CNY in the long term.
