ICICI Direct’s currency report on USDINR
The rupee remained almost flat for the day after movement was seen on both sides.

EUR/US$ fell back slightly on concern about the third wave of Covid infections spreading through Europe.
Currency futures on NSE
The US$ INR pair continue to appreciate as the dollar index remained below 92. However, a rise in US yields would push the Dollar index above 92, which would move the US$ INR pair higher. However, a rise should be used to create fresh shorts • The dollar-rupee March contract on the NSE was at Rs 72.58 in the last session. The open interest fell by almost 0.32% for the March series.
