    The downside risks to 'no deal' Brexit will keep dollar bulls intact

    Due to coronavirus widespread, the dollar is losing its safe-haven properties and is keeping USDINR spot below the psychological level of 74. Also, next week is the Fed policy and we expect Powell to update the forecasts for growth and inflation along with dovish stance.

If 74 breaks then prices can surge towards 74.20 zone: Rahul Gupta, Head of Research- Currency, Emkay Global Financial Services

    A break of 13380 would be negative, which could see Nifty 50 revisit 13250

    The chart indicates a reversal formation in the Nifty 50 index that has been formed after hitting the lows of 13400. However, if the Nifty 50 index has to scale new highs it needs to sustain a move above 13530 levels. Meanwhile on an immediate basis, 13600 and 13660 would be barriers for the index.
