Trading in the rupee was closed on account of holiday for forex segment. The  one month NDF s are suggesting a stable start to the rupee from its previous close of 64.46 The dollar index held ground around 93. The dollar fell ahead of tax reform bill. However, as the bill has now been forwarded to the conference for final draft, we expect the dollar to trade stronger. A higher fiscal defict with the proposed tax amendment is likely to have elements of erstwhile “reflation trade, i.e. a stronger dollar, US  bond  yields and equities.
