ICICI Direct's currency report on USDINR

Spot Currency

The rupee extended mild gains vs. the US$ ending higher by almost 3 paise. It is likely to open with further gains amid appreciation in Chinese Yuan and soft US$. However, strength in oil prices is likely to create headwind for sharp gains in the rupee • The US$ index ended mildly lower as a rebound in the Euro and GBP led to profit booking. Risk aversion has declined amid expectation that Brexit is most likely to get delayed or there is less possibility of a hard Brexit. Chinese Yuan has seen some appreciation. This is positive for EM currencies, including the rupee.

Benchmark yield

Domestic benchmark 10-year yields ended lower at 6.51% in the previous session. Investors are likely to track the government’s spending data amid signals that it may fail to meet its revenue target • The US 10-year benchmark was unchanged at 1.76% in the previous session. Brexit uncertainty as well as absence of any major market data is keeping yields in a range.

Currency futures on NSE

The dollar-rupee October contract on the NSE was at 70.95 in the previous session. Open interest increased 6.65% in the previous session • We expect the US$INR to meet supply pressure at higher levels. Utilise upsides in the pair to initiate short positions.
