06:45 EDTFX Update: The PBoC devalued the CNY for a third day
FX Update: The PBoC devalued the CNY for a third day, but at a decreasingly aggressive pace of 1.1%, comparing to 1.6% yesterday and the initial 1.9% devaluation of Monday. The central bank held a press conference to explain the devaluation -- in contrast to the two previous occasions -- where it argued that it was not going to collapse the currency, and that there was no economic basis for the currency to continue depreciating. This mollified markets, and Asian currencies and global stocks rebounded strongly. The dollar, meanwhile, traded firmer against the euro and yen, with USD-JPY recouping about half of yesterday's losses making a 124.59 peak, and EUR-USD declining to intraday low of 1.1107, down over a big figure form yesterday's peak. The re-pricing of the euro to reflect diminished Grexit concerns, meanwhile, looks to have worked through, with EUR-CHF -- the best proxy of this -- finally settling after seven consecutive higher daily highs.

The dollar, meanwhile, is net softer against most Asian currencies, including as the won, baht and Singaporean dollar.
