The rupee consolidated and remained near 73 levels despite a sharp rise in the Dollar index. We feel follow up action would take the rupee towards 73.5 levels • The dollar has gained along with US bond yields as impending US fiscal stimulus adds fuel to expectations of higher inflation and the rollout of vaccines indicates that the economy is headed for recovery.
