Rupee may depreciate on strong dollar, elevated crude prices; USDINR pair likely to trade with positive bias

The Indian rupee is likely to depreciate amid strong dollar, elevated crude prices, uncertainty in equity markets and volatile FII inflows. USDINR is expected to trade within a range of 79.50 and 80.10 on spot in the coming sessions.

The local currency has so far depreciated more than 7% against the U.S. dollar, but Das said the depreciation was less than in other currencies.

Focusing on individual stocks; some themes gearing up for strong moves in near term

“Our domestic markets are clearly shrugging off most of the unfavorable global developments, which is a sign of inherent strength. If we take a glance at the daily time frame chart, we can see the index reaching the crucial trend line resistance level of 17700. A small push from the global markets would certainly provide the much needed impetus to the breakout from the recent congestion phase. After this, we will not be surprised to see index hastening towards 17850 and then even towards the psychological mark of 18000. On the flipside, 17540 – 17460 should now provide some cushion on any small intraday declines. Apart from this, the banking space continues to lead from the front, which is a sign of a healthy move. We advise traders to keep focusing on individual stocks; because some of the themes from the broader market are gearing up for strong moves in the near term.”

The street is probably hoping for only a modest 0.50% interest rate hike from the Fed this September. For Tuesday’s session, Nifty’s major hurdle is seen at 17757.”
