With more and more international commerce activities, the Chinese market is becoming active around the world. China’s foreign exchange reserves rose $5.8 billion, or 0.19 percent, from a month earlier to $3.1179 trillion at the end of July, announced by China’s central bank this early time of August. The increase followed a month-on-month rise of about $1.5 billion in June, according to the People’s Bank of China (PBOC).

Experts see the Forex trading as a risky market which could bring a lot of instability to the Chinese economy as many Chinese people are involved in this market (the potential to loose a lot of people’s savings).
