    Key Quotes:

    "However, most spot USD/CNY trade since Wed has been in the 6.5850-6.5900 area, with a 4:30pm rate of 6.5873 on Friday and a CFETS close of 6.5840. USD/CNH meanwhile is only just dipping back below 6.60 as newswires report new rules aimed at limiting yuan short selling by foreign banks. There is no reason to expect any trade with a 6.56 handle today despite the likely low fixing.
