SummaryIndian rupee likely to be negatively affected if equities fall on any rate hike.

Reserve Bank of India's (RBI) monetary policy review on Oct. 29 will be a key, with traders expecting a 25 basis points (bps) hike to fight inflationary pressures.

While a 25 bps rate hike has been largely priced in, a bigger hike or further signs of tightening from the RBI will lead to a sell-off in bonds.

Dealers are waiting to see whether the RBI will cut the marginal standing facility rate or raise the cap on banks' repo borrowing to ease liquidity pressures.
