ICICI Direct’s currency report on USDINR
The rupee gained another 15 paise to close at 72.50. It managed to gain 10 paise to end at 72.65 levels. We feel the rupee is likely to appreciate further • The momentum in GBP/US$ continued. It remained largely above 1.40 levels. The risk on move in the currency pair is likely to continue and a change of bias would be seen only below 1.38 levels.
Currency futures on NSE
The US$ INR future continue to appreciate against the dollar and moved below our target levels of 72.50. We believe it should consolidate around these levels while upsides can be used as shorting opportunity once again • The dollar-rupee February contract on the NSE was at Rs 72.46 in the last session. The open interest increased almost 5% in the February series.
