    Anindya Banerjee, DVP, Currency Derivatives & Interest Rate Derivatives at Kotak Securities:

    The USDINR spot touched a low of 74.31 on the back of lumpy corporate and IPO related dollar inflows, the lowest levels since early July. However, alleged intervention from the central bank pulled the pair near 74.38 by the close of day. 

    Tonight's US FOMC meeting will be a key driver of volatility. A hawkish or dovish turn will determine the next volatility in USDINR. A broad range of 74.00 to 74.60 is expected over the near term.

    Abhishek Agarwal, Managing Partner, Rockstud Capital:

    Markets remained volatile today but interesting thing to note is that despite acute turmoil in Chinese stock markets, we stood our ground well. This shows huge buying interest from investors waiting on the sidelines for a correction. PSU banks are delivering good results refereeing Canara Bank and UCO Bank numbers. Looking at overall IPO markets, especially the forthcoming ones, I think a huge correction is unlikely in the medium term.

    Ashis Biswas, Head of Technical Research at CapitalVia Global Research:

    The market witnessed the continuation of the bearish movement after a failed attempt to hold the support level around the Nifty 50 Index level of 15700. If the market sustains below 15700, and can see the continuation in the correction till the next support level near 15420-15450. The traders are advised to refrain from building a new buying position until further improvement is seen in the market breadth.
