A driver in Foshan, South China, ran over a 2 year old girl named Yueyue (小悦悦) twice, rather than face the hassle of a possible lawsuit. Meanwhile, 18 people walked by the seriously wounded girl, ignoring the situation until a female scrap collector stopped and brought her to the hospital. The girl died from severe injuries a couple of days later. The entire incident was captured on a very graphic video.

A >5% CNH downside swing is just a possibility, not a certainty. In fact, not even a high probability event. Though we suppose people have underpriced this probability. Perhaps some have confused the characteristics of onshore CNY with offshore CNH. The CNY and CNH have different volatilities and serve different political/economic purposes.

Some Dim Sum bonds (CNH denominated bonds) are leveraged 10:1 and financed in USD.

What's the implication for Australian Dollar and Australian banks?

"Home and apartment prices in Melbourne are down 3.9% this year to A$485,000. In the Western Australian capital of Perth, prices are down 2.4% to A$461,000, according to RP Data-Rismark. Sydney has side-stepped some of the weakness, up 0.5% over the past 12 months, but still off 1.3% since the start of this year to A$515,000. ""  """
