The Chinese currency Renminbi (RMB), or the yuan, Wednesday gained two basis points from the previous trading day to hit a record new high of 6.4948 per U.S. dollar.

This marks a third consecutive day that the yuan has risen to new high.

The central parity rate of the RMB against the U.S. dollar is based on a weighted average of prices before the opening of the market each business day.
