Chinese authorities have been intervening since last month to push the yuan down, and the move threatens to upset the U.S. and ignite a currency war with Asia.
The dollar has gained 2.4 percent against the yuan since Feb. 14. The Chinese currency had been gradually appreciating, amid pressure from Washington, over the past nine years.
