Amid signs higher USA interest rates and fears of a global trade war are having an impact on the world's second-largest economy, China's central bank hopes cutting the reserve requirement ratios (RRRs) by 1% from 15 October will lower financing costs and spur growth.

Spot yuan was on track for its lowest close in seven weeks against the USA dollar, as expectations of more easing measures by China, plus surging United States bond yields, put pressure on the Chinese currency. Soaring U.S. interest rates and uncertainties surrounding trade war pressurizes worldwide economies.

Monday was the first chance for mainland investors to react to the escalating trade tensions and a sell-off in Hong Kong markets last week after a week-long holiday on the mainland to celebrate National Day.

China insisted last month, in a 71-page paper, that its economy is "highly resilient" and Beijing is not afraid of a trade war.

The blue-chip CSI300 index was down 2.3 percent at the open and off more than 3 percent by 0215 GMT, while the Shanghai Composite Index dropped some 2.5 percent.

U.S. Vice President, Mike Pence in his speech last week increased Washington's pressure crusade against Beijing on Thursday by hinting malign Chinese efforts to emasculate Donald Trump before congressional elections that are about to take place next month.

I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent'. She also condemned Republican senatorial candidate Marsha Blackburn for her voting record on women's rights and equal marriage.

China's IT sector fell sharply on Monday, tumbling over 3.4 percent in early trading.

The People's Bank of China announced earlier yesterday that it would lower the required reserve ratio by 1 percent for most banks on October 15, allowing lenders to pay off CNY450 million (USD65 million) in medium-term lending facilities due to mature that day and freeing up another CNY750 million in liquidity.

Chinese Minister Liu Kun stated, "Some regions and companies have been hit (by trade frictions), but China has the ability to minimize the impact".

The 30-year Treasury bond reached a four-year high of 3.424 percent, and was at 3.4054 percent at the US close on Friday. Prior to Wednesday's market opening, the PBOC set the yuan's midpoint rate at 6.8571 per dollar, the weakest level since August 24, and 131 pips or 0.19 percent weaker than the previous fix of 6.8440. Tokyo was closed for a public holiday. The onshore yuan has weakened about 5.5 per cent against the dollar this year.

The decision is meant to "further encourage the stable development of the real economy, optimise the liquidity structure of commercial banks and financial markets, lower financing costs, and to continue increasing the financial systems' efforts to support small businesses, private enterprise and innovation", the People's Bank of China said in a statement. Dealers were given a negative lead from Wall Street, where all three main indexes ended with sharp losses following news that unemployment had hit a 49-year low and wages saw healthy gains.
