Rupee will continue to be influenced by Crude, Dollar, Yields, Yuan and Flows -- Portia Advisory Services

"Today USDINR likely to remain in the range of 73.72 (stretched 73.54) to 74.12 (stretched 74.34)... Too much rise in U.S. Treasury bond yields is causing a concern for U.S. equity markets (10Y yield at 3.246%). A risk aversion leading to a rise in Japanese Yen. Dollar Index is currently at 95.74 and is also relatively low due to European political events where Italian Deputy PM speaking at a conference alongwith Far-right French leader Ms.Marine Le Pen, denounced the European Commission President and Economics Commissioner... Chinese Yuan has declined to 6.92 against USD. DOW closed up 39points, whereas Asian markets of Nikkei & HangSeng are mixed with -282 & +54 pts respectively, Japanese markets are almost correlated to Yen moves (if it appreciates, equities decline and vice-versa). Indian equity markets had both-way swings yesterday, even with Cash-Fx market being closed (due to U.S. holiday). SGX Nifty Fut is +14pts, at the backdrop of stable Crude prices - Brent has again risen to $84.27 per barrel due to fall in Iran Oil exports. Rupee will continue to be influenced by Crude, Dollar, Yields, Yuan and Flows."
