Net foreign exchange sales in Chinese banks dropped last month, indicating eased capital outflows, new data showed Friday.

Banks bought 121.6 billion U.S. dollars worth of foreign currency and sold 140.8 billion U.S. dollars, resulting in a net sale of 19.2 billion U.S. dollars in January, according to an online State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) statement.

The deficit was down from December's 46.3 billion U.S. dollars and November's 33.4 billion U.S. dollars.

The pressure on capital outflows has been alleviated since the start of the year, SAFE said

The Chinese yuan has shown signs of recovering from its previous weakness against the U.S. dollar, as the economy started the year on a firmer footing.

The central parity rate of the yuan strengthened for the fourth consecutive day to 6.8456 against the U.S. dollar Friday, marking a more than three-week high.
