ICICI Direct's currency report on USDINR

Debt market  

Government bonds were little changed, as an open market sale of bonds  increased supply, even as investors remained cautious after August retail  inflation accelerated to a five-month high  • The GoI benchmark 6.79% 2027 bond yield was steady at 6.59% in the  previous session  • Yield on the US 10-year yield declined to 2.18% from 2.19% in the  previous session.

Forex (US$/INR)

The rupee fell to a more-than-one-week low against the US$, tracking  overnight gains due to uptick in US  treasury yields and strong producer  price data  • The US$ fell against major currencies as sharp gains in the British Pound  and safe haven demand for JPY weighed on the US$. BoE in its September monetary meeting hinted at earlier-than-expected rise in interest rates. Recent uptick in UK inflation data is positive for British Pound. US August CPI was higher at 1.9% beating estimates of 1.8%.

In the currency futures market, the most traded dollar-rupee September contract on the NSE ended at 64.22. The September contract open interest declined 9.98% from the previous day • October contract open interest increased 3.53% in the previous session • We expect the US$ to meet resistance at higher levels. Utilise upside in the pair to go short on the US$INR.
