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

    USDINR spot closed 11 paise lower at 75.25 on the back of rise in stocks and weakness in the US Dollar Index, after real yields fell in US. 

    Over the next week, USDINR may continue to see more range bound price action between 75 and 75.80 levels in October futures. 

    For USDINR to break down below 75.00 or challenge 76.00, it needs either the US Dollar Index to head lower or equity markets to head lower. Therefore, one can focus on trading this range using futures or even look at selling options to pocket premium.

    On the technical chart, the Nifty index has been trading above the Rising Trendline Breakout, which indicates a bullish trend in the counter. A daily momentum indicator Stochastic and MACD both have shown positive crossover on the daily chart which supports the bullish momentum. 

    Furthermore, the price has also moved above the upper Bollinger Band formation, which suggests that the bullish rally may continue further. At present, the index has immediate support at the 18,050 level, while an upside move is expected till 18,500 levels.

    The Indian market sustained its upbeat mood supported by positive global market, favorable inflation data and up move in IT stocks following strong earning scorecards by sector majors. India’s September retail inflation eased sharply to 4.35% against 5.30% in August owing to a decline in food price while wholesale inflation stood at to 10.66% compared to 11.39% in the previous month. Banking stocks also contributed to the rally and remained in focus as the sector is set to kickstart its earnings season.
