ICICI Direct's currency report on USDINR
After appreciating for a long time, the rupee tumbled nearly 25 paise and closed at 74.95 levels despite the Dollar index remaining under pressure. We continue to feel the US$INR pair could remain in a range for a couple of sessions • The Dollar index continued to remain under pressure below 97 levels as questions on the effect of pandemic on the US economy rises. JOLTs Job Openings, IBD/TIPP index and API report could be the trigger for the index.
