It has intervened by $1.3 bln, US Treasury estimates. Taiwan appears to have intervened by $900 bln all of last year. The currency has weakened by 0.46% on average in the last hour compared with 0.2% last year. The US wants Taiwan to limit its interventions to disorderly markets, and be more transparent in its reserves and interventions. This is interesting color for clients who transact in Taiwanese dollars.”
