“Rupee fell in the first half of the session but rose in the latter half despite sharp gains in the dollar against its major crosses. In the last few sessions dollar has been on the rise on expectation that the Federal Reserve in its upcoming policy meeting would be adopting to more aggressive stance. Market participants remained cautious also ahead of the advance GDP number that was released from the US. Data showed the U.S. economy unexpectedly contracted in the first quarter amid a resurgence in COVID-19 cases and drop in pandemic relief money from the government.Today, focus will be on the preliminary inflation number that will be released from the Euro zone and core PCE index number from the US.

“The Indian Rupee is expected to open again near 76.60, ignoring all the facts and weaker fundamentals to trade in a tight range of 76.40 to 76.80 zone. The compression of momentum suggests an upcoming wild move on either side. Thus, one should remain cautious and well placed. As the month is near its end, oil is poised to post a fifth monthly advance, and the bond market is set to have the worst month since the burst of rate hikes in 1990. In the equity market, tech leader- Nasdaq is already down by more than 20% this year. Commodities are the only outliers. So, inflation is into its Bull run and the growth is doubtful. A certain next week’s 50 bps Fed hike and aggression from Russia for an energy stoppage to EU could support the ‘Sell in May and go away’ story again. Domestically, LIC IPO and other FDI-related flows could turn the story upside down. Meantime, the short-term range is pegged between 75.70 to 77.00.”

Combination of central financial institution intervention and capital flows is protecting USDINR capped, inspite of a relentless rise within the US Dollar Index. YTD USDINR has appreciated by a bit over 2.5%, slightly below median improve of round 4% for main currencies. Therefore, Rupee has finished properly on common however not by a big margin. Therefore, RBI has been profitable in protecting the Rupee secure. One can argue that if US Dollar continues to rise in international markets, then RBI could enable the pair to float in the direction of 77.50/78.00 vary, nonetheless properly throughout the secure ranges. Rangebound value motion is music to the ears of possibility sellers. However, on the identical time, additionally preserve some lengthy ratio name spreads in your portfolio. If the above adjustment happens through the month of May, these commerce can ship respectable returns.”

“The Indian Rupee likely to trade on a flattish note where Indian rupee is also getting strength on back of several IPO flows expectation indicating much-awaited Rs 21,000 crore mega LIC IPO. Dollar rupee is consolidating in range of 76.42 to 77.09 levels from last few trading sessions which are going to act as immediate support and resistance respectively. However, overall trend for USDINR is still bullish as it holds above it key moving averages. On down side below range next support is placed around 76.11 levels while on higher side, if it sustains above 77.09, USDINR will resume it upwards rally in near future.
