US$INR pair has outperformed rest of the Asian peers in the recent leg • The greenback was broadly lower amid a rally in the US Treasury market ahead of US data and a series of Fed speakers including Jerome Powell. However, there is possibility of the Dollar index moving towards 92.50 till it holds above 91.60 levels.

US$INR pair continued to appreciate as the dollar index failed to sustain above 92 levels. Moreover, some cooloff in US yields provided cushion to the US$INR pair, which gained further strength amid continued FII inflows. However, a rise should be used to create fresh shorts • The dollar-rupee March contract on the NSE was at Rs 72.44 in the last session. The open interest increased by almost 13.5% for the March series.
