ICICI Direct's currency report on USDINR

Spot Currency

The rupee tumbled to the lowest level in more than four months despite a decent recovery in equities • The rupee fell around 1.2% to 74.55 per dollar, the weakest since mid November 2020. The central bank said on Wednesday it will buy Rs 1 trillion ($14 billion) of bonds in the secondary market this quarter, in addition to its existing liquidity operations.

Currency futures on NSE

The rupee plunged to a four month low due to primary liquidity infusion via bond and rising Covid-19 cases that have created uncertainty. This may imply tapered money growth, which suggests this will put depreciation pressure on the rupee • The dollar-rupee April contract on the NSE was at Rs 74.55 in the last session. The open interest increased 15% for the April series.
