The rupee spot prices did not appreciate much and closed the day almost flat above 75 levels. However, futures saw a decline of almost 20 paisa in the last session amid buoyant equities. We believe that breach of 74.50-75.50 range will bring a sharp directional move in the currency pair • The Euro witnessed a sharp up move in July and is consolidating near highs. We do not se any major weakness. The current momentum is likely to continue after a brief consolidation.
