Forex sales blues

CHINA’S central bank continued to see net foreign exchange sales in October as a weakening yuan raised capital flight pressure, data showed yesterday.

The People’s Bank of China said its yuan funds outstanding for foreign exchange fell 267.9 billion yuan (US$39 billion) in October to 22.6 trillion yuan.

It was a milder drop than the 337.5 billion yuan fall in September but marked the 12th straight month of declines.

China’s foreign exchange reserves shrank for a fourth straight month to US$3.12 trillion in October, the lowest level since March 2011.
