China's forex regulator says it's currently seeing the most balanced supply and demand for foreign exchange in China in the past 3-years.

The State Administration of Foreign Exchange says this is mostly due to a crackdown on speculative or suspect outbound investments.

The 4-month slowdown of the US dollar, which has lost around 8-percent of its value during that period, is also being cited as a factor behind a continual rise in China's forex levels.

The latest data shows China's foreign exchange reserves rose for a 6th consecutive month in July, putting China's foreign exchange levels back above 3-trillion US dollars.
