JPY/CNH Futures

Economic interdependence of Japan and China, reflected in the large trade volumes between the two countries have created strong demand for inter-currency payments between Renminbi (RMB) and Japanese yen (JPY). Furthermore, JPY encompasses among the largest components of the basket of currencies referenced under Mainland China’s managed float exchange rate regime. Against that backdrop, HKEX’s JPY/CNH futures provide transparency in price discovery reflecting exchange rate expectations driven by market forces.
