Tuesday’s opening rate for the Indian rupee was slightly lower than the previous day’s close of 82.65 to the dollar. Due to a rise in risk appetite on international markets and the depreciation of the dollar, the local currency is anticipated to increase in value. Market confidence increased on expectations of more gradual Fed rate increases, and it even increased after China stated that its requirement that visitors enter the country under quarantine will stop in January, bolstering expectations of a more comprehensive economic recovery. A rise in crude oil prices, however, “may preclude strong advances in the domestic currency,” according to a note from ICICIdirect.
“USDINR spot closed 21 paise lower at 82.65, supported by risk-on market attitudes and exporter selling as the year came to an end. The rupee may increase a little more versus the US dollar till this is through, perhaps reaching levels around 82.35 or 82.40. Anindya Banerjee, VP Of Currency Derivatives & Interest Rate Derivatives at Kotak Securities, predicted a spot range of between 82.35 and 82.85.
“Due to the Dollar’s weakening and the strength of the local markets, we anticipate the Rupee to trade favourably. Pressure on the dollar may also come from a decline in the allure of safe haven assets due to an increase in risk appetite worldwide. Rupee appreciation, however, was restrained by the rise in crude oil prices. Anuj Choudhary, a research analyst at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas, predicted that the USDINR spot price would fluctuate between Rs 82 and Rs 83.30.
