11:50 am Rupee outlook: 
The devaluation of the yuan should not be seen as a sign of China wanting to wage a currency war, but it is more to do with China's ambitions to facilitate yuan's inclusion in Special Drawing Rights (SDR), says Dennis Tan, Fx Strategist, Barclays. He adds that it should be seen more as a liberalisation or a reform measure to improve he fixing mechanism so that it reflects the market rates.

The market has bounced back after four days of losses led higher by the bank Nifty as global markets stabilised and sentiment is boosted by the CPI data for July that came in much better than estimates at 3.78 percent versus 5.4 percent in June. Rupee, however, slipped to the day's low after a decent start.

China's central bank said that there was no basis for further depreciation in the yuan given strong economic fundamentals, in a bid to reassure jittery global markets after it devalued the currency earlier in the week.


As the yuan fell for the third straight day, the People's Bank of China (PBOC) said the country's strong economic environment, sustained trade surplus, sound fiscal position and deep foreign exchange reserves provided "strong support" to the exchange rate.


China's decision to devalue the currency on Tuesday by pushing its official guidance rate down 2 percent sparked fears of a "currency war" and roiled global financial markets, dragging other Asian currencies to multi-year lows.
