Die EZB verkaufte etwas USD um den Aufkauf des chinesischen
Renminbi quer zu finanzieren, was den Euro zum USD etwas ansteigen ließ:

Nichts desto trotz bleibt der USD weiterhin die wichtigste Fremdwährungsreserve der EZB!

ECB completes foreign reserves investment in Chinese renminbi equivalent to €500 million

Investment reflects increased role of Chinese renminbi as global currency
Overall size of ECB’s foreign reserves unchanged
The European Central Bank (ECB) completed an investment equivalent to €500 million of the ECB’s foreign reserves in Chinese renminbi (CNY) during the first half of 2017, implementing a decision taken by the ECB Governing Council on 20 January 2017.
The use of CNY as a global international currency has increased in recent years. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) determined the renminbi to be a freely usable currency in its five-yearly review of the Special Drawing Right (SDR) Currency Basket in 2015. Since October 2016, the IMF has approved its inclusion in the SDR basket as the fifth currency, alongside the US dollar, the euro, the Japanese yen and the British pound.
The ECB’s investment also reflects the importance of China as one of the euro area’s largest trading partners.
The investment in CNY was made by changing the current composition of the ECB’s foreign reserves. The ECB sold a small portion of its US dollar holdings, which remain the largest portfolio, leaving the overall size of the ECB’s foreign reserves unchanged.
The ECB’s foreign reserves now comprise US dollars, Japanese yen, Chinese renminbi, gold and SDRs.
