The central bank of the Asian nation doubled the trade limit as the trade week began. Now standing at 2 percent, the move comes as China works to reverse a slowdown of the world's second-biggest economy. China is aiming to reach a growth rate of 7.5 percent, which would be the slowest expansion since 1990. The U.S. economy is the globe's largest.

The PBOC is aiming to allow markets increased capacities to develop the national economy, according to Reuters.
