China took another step in its push to make the Yuan the World's Reserve Currency instead of the Dollar. From Bloomberg:
China took another step to boost the yuan’s global usage, saying it will start direct trading with the Swiss franc, as the nation pushes its case for reserve-currency status at the International Monetary Fund.
The link will start on Tuesday, the China Foreign Exchange Trade System said in a statement, making the franc the seventh major currency that can bypass a conversion into the U.S. dollar and be directly exchanged for yuan. The rate will be allowed to fluctuate a maximum 5 percent on either side of a daily fixing, according to CFETS.
“This is an important step in strengthening bilateral economic and trade connections between China and Switzerland,” the People’s Bank of China said in a statement on its website on Monday. The link will help lower conversion costs and facilitate the use of both currencies in bilateral trade, it added.
The Federal Reserve's inflationary policies over the past few years have done little to instill confidence of the Dollar's status as the World's Reserve Currency. Help Campaign for Liberty pass Audit the Fed by signing your petition today.
