ICICI Direct's currency report on USDINR
Despite the Dollar index remaining at elevated levels, the rupee managed to appreciate 33 paise on the back of a sharp recovery in domestic equities • The Dollar index continued to trade above 92 levels even though US yields weighed on the dollar and dragged it lower. If it manages to hold above this level than it is likely to make a new three-month high.
