ICICI Direct's currency report on USDINR
The rupee largely remained range bound last week between 73 and 73.50 levels amid high volatility due to global cues. Renewed fears of a lockdown have triggered a sharp decline in equities but the rupee has shown significant resilience • The dollar index further gained momentum triggered by risk-off sentiments, which pulled the index towards 93.8 levels. A stalemate on a new Covid relief package has also triggered some strength in the dollar.

Due to ongoing pressure in risk assets, the dollar index has started gaining strength once again. A move above 94.20 may open the gates for further upsides towards 95 levels that might take the rupee towards 74. However, we believe the rupee will find a strong hurdle around these levels • The dollar-rupee October contract on the NSE closed near 73.42 in the last session. The open interest increased by 4.5% in the last session.
