CNBC reports, “Starting Monday, trading hours for the yuan on the Shanghai based foreign exchange market will be extended. The extension allows trading in the Chinese foreign exchange market during European trading hours.”

This change was made in order to help support the IMF’s decision to add the yuan into the basket of global reserve currencies

Which makes this the perfect time to load up on some yuan before heading over to China because you'll get the most value for your dollar. To stay in the loop with more forex trends sign up here
