  • 'Uncertainty' over China's yuan fuels market turmoil: Yellen

    US Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said Wednesday that China's unclear policy over its yuan currency was stoking turbulence in global markets and exacerbating global economic growth concerns. The yuan's recent declines "have intensified uncertainty about China's exchange rate policy and the prospects for its economy," she said in testimony to Congress. "This uncertainty led to increased volatility in global financial markets and, against the background of persistent weakness abroad, exacerbated concerns about the outlook for global growth." Although she expressed confidence that China's economy was not facing an abrupt stall, the US central bank chief said the overall uncertainty emanating from the world's second-largest economy was behind some of the steep falls in global commodities prices, in turn stressing the economies of exporters.
