Karvy's research report on currency -
In today's session, Asian equities are trading marginally higher, tracking the bullish tone of the US market. The Bank of Japan will announce interest rate and asset purchase decision later on today. The BoJ is likely to keep its interest rate unchanged while continuing its asset purchase program. This may support Asian equities and, thereby, the rupee against dollar. Moreover, the euro is trading up by 0.15 percent against the dollar. European policymakers will meet this afternoon to discuss economic growth concerns and ways to overcome debt. Europe will release its trade balance number today, which is expected to improve on the back of higher export compared to import. This may support the euro and might pressurize the dollar against the rupee. The Federal Reserve expected to meet today to discuss its quantitative easing program. The Fed is likely to continue the QE program to support economic growth. This may pressurize the dollar. Hence, we expect the rupee to trade positive though gains could be limited due to the Reserve Bank of India buying $820 million to bolster reserves. Overall, we expect the rupee to stay marginally positive in today's session.
