ICICI Direct's currency report on USDINR
The downtrend in the dollar index did not impact the rupee. It remained range bound below 75 levels. Weakness in equities also did not help in appreciation of the currency pair. However, we expect it to breach 74.50 levels in the days to come • The dollar intensified the decline and moved below 93 following the dovish note at the FOMC meeting on Wednesday, when the committee showed increasing concerns on the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on the economy.
