On Monday, the treasury department of the United States termed China as a currency manipulator. After the Clinton administration, it is for the first time that White House took to historic move to announce its landmark decision.

The treasury Department of U.S. added that China took solid move to devalue its yuan in recent days whereas it sustained reserves of substantial foreign exchange instead of the active use of similar tools in the past.
Furthermore, they stated that the main aim of these moves of China and the inconceivability of Chinese currency devaluation is to take unfair competitive benefit in worldwide trade. Relative to the U.S. dollar, the yuan fell to 7 formerly in the session for the first time since 2008.
Chief Market strategist at Bannockburn, Marc Chandler said that at private sector several people might not conclude China as a currency manipulator. The vital rule is it’s not overriding constantly or obstinately to degrade the currency, and thus the private sector such as strategists and economists may not be persuaded.
Moreover, he states that this is another move from one opponent in the currency war, and it makes trade more challenging, hence possibly bi-partisan. A number of Democrats and Republicans are thinking that China is taking benefit of them.
