How China manipulates its currency?

What is the purpose of currency manipulation?

Why is Chinese currency so strong?

Why is the gold standard a type of fixed exchange rate system?

Why is China’s currency so low?

What happens if a country’s currency quickly depreciates too much?

But an abrupt and sizable currency depreciation may scare foreign investors who fear the currency may fall further, leading them to pull portfolio investments out of the country.
