Beijing: The central parity rate of the Chinese currency renminbi, or the yuan, weakened 42 basis points to 6.7954 against the US dollar on Monday, according to the China Foreign Exchange Trade System.

In China's spot foreign exchange market, the yuan is allowed to rise or fall by 2 per cent from the central parity rate each trading day, Xinhua reported.

The central parity rate of the yuan against the US dollar is based on a weighted average of prices offered by market makers before the opening of the interbank market each business day.
