China Forex Reserves Drop More Than Expected in November

BEIJING--China's foreign-exchange reserves dropped more than expected last month amid renewed dollar strength, official data showed Saturday.

The country's hoard of foreign exchange decreased $9.6 billion from a month earlier to $3.0956 trillion in November, according to data released by the People's Bank of China, compared with a median forecast for a $5 billion decline, according to a poll of economists conducted by The Wall Street Journal.

The fall in November was due to valuation effects from a stronger dollar against a basket of currencies and asset-price changes as bond prices in major economies dropped, the State Administration of Foreign Exchange said in a statement after the data was released.

The yuan dropped 0.13% against the U.S. dollar in November, while the U.S. dollar index climbed nearly 1%, according to data provider Wind.
