tick-by-tick movement, volumes and market participant information in
China's onshore interbank market," said Tod Van Name, Bloomberg's Global

smarter and more timely trading, hedging and investment decisions."
Global currency traders, corporate treasurers and institutional
investors can now view executable quotes and trades on the interbank

players who are invested in China will have better visibility when
hedging against movements of the renminbi."

inflows and outflows intensifying in 2012, development of the offshore
renminbi market will drive domestic financial market reform, and aid in
a fair and transparent price discovery process for renminbi foreign
"BNP Paribas is one of the first international banks to access
Bloomberg's CFETS service," said Julien Martin, Deputy Head of Fixed

interbank dollar-yuan rates that better reflect market conditions,
providing investors with a critical edge in foreign exchange
transactions amidst today's volatile trading environment."
This announcement follows Bloomberg's leadership in the evolution of the
offshore renminbi (CNH) market, which includes the development and
