SHANGHAI, Oct 9 (Reuters) - China’s onshore spot yuan finished the domestic session at a 17-month high of 6.7135 against the dollar and was set for its biggest one-day percentage gain since 2005.
If it retains all the gains at the late night close, it would have risen 1.27% against the dollar on the day, marking the biggest one-day rise since July 2005, when China revalued its currency by 2.1% and dropped a decade-old peg against the dollar.
Its offshore counterpart also followed the strengthening trend and traded at 6.7035 per dollar as of 0843 GMT.
