ICICI Direct's currency report on USDINR

Spot Currency

Weakness in the rupee continued as it depreciated and closed above 74 levels. However, positive domestic equities would limit downsides • As US stocks rebounded sharply, the Dollar index fell marginally. However, it continued to sustain near crucial level of 92. Weakness in Euro should continue, which would provide cushion to the Dollar index.

Currency futures on NSE

Despite the sharp up move seen in the Dollar index, the US$INR appreciated and moved back towards 74 levels. However, we believe the depreciation may continue in the short term. The US$INR pair should move higher towards 74.50 levels • The dollar-rupee June contract on the NSE was at Rs 74.20 in the last session. The open interest declined almost 3% for the June series.
