This has ended up lowering the trading prices of the major Asia currencies.

The USD is Trading Stronger

Then there is the US market which is doing quite well compared to the Asian markets. The trading price of the USD versus the Chinese and other major currencies has grown stronger.

The Feds announced that they will continue hiking the interest rates to fight off inflation. According to the Feds, they will continue hiking rates even in the month of September.

Value of Chinese Yuan Experienced a Dip

The trading value of the Chinese yuan ended up trading at 6.7620. It happened because the trading data that came out was lower than the expected rise in the imports for the Chinese market.

Due to the downfall of the Chinese economy, the economy of the entire Asian region has taken a negative hit.

The rise in Chinese Inflation
