They say they want markets to value currencies but warn against "excessive volatility and disorderly movements in exchange rates" and pledge "to continue to consult closely on exchange markets and cooperate as appropriate." That is, they will let markets work except when markets become inconveniently "excessive" and "disorderly" and then they will coordinate their market rigging. They won't intervene except when they do. This is all doubletalk.
