Macro Comment China — We expect a weaker CNY vs. USD, but only temporarily

The marked strengthening of the CNY versus the USD in late May prompts us to lower our short-term USD/CNY forecast. Revisions to our house view on the general USD strength also imply revisions to our CNY outlook. However, our underlying view is unchanged and we still expect a weakening of the CNY versus the USD in the short term, but a stronger CNY in the long term.
