    Dollar being hit

    Yuan moves one step closer to global currency status

    China launched a currency swap deal with the euro zone on Thursday, in the country's latest push to transform the yuan into a major world currency.

    The foreign exchange (FX) swap — an agreement to exchange one currency for another at a set rate at a certain time in the future — will have a maximum size of 350 billion yuan ($57.2 billion) and 45 billion euros ($60.9 billion) and will be valid for three years.

    "From the perspective of the euro system, the swap arrangement is intended to serve as a backstop liquidity facility and to reassure euro area banks of the continuous provision of Chinese yuan," said the European Central Bank in a news release.
