Rupee may trade in 75.10-75.80 range in next couple of days

Indian Rupee appreciated amid weakness in Dollar and rise in risk appetite in the domestic markets. Further, rupee gained strength on improved macroeconomic data. India CPI data showed that inflation eased to 5-month low of 4.35% in September and remained within RBI’s comfort zone. However, sharp gains were prevented on surge in crude oil prices and as investors remained vigilant ahead of FOMC meeting minutes and inflation data from US. Rupee may trade in the range of 75.10 to 75.80 in next couple of session. Raj Deepak Singh, Head-Derivatives – ICICI Securities

What led Sensex, Nifty rally today?

The hallmark of today’s record-breaking moves by the Sensex and Nifty is the surge in Tata stocks led by Tata Motors and strongly supported by Tata Consumer, Tata Chemicals and Tata Power. Surge in a heavy weight like Tata Motors by more than 20 percent in a day is extremely rare. But this surge is backed by positive news of massive investment of Rs 7500 cr by TPG. Another important feature is the good performance of HDFC bank which is showing signs of coming back as a market leader. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

What’s fueling Nifty rally?

The Nifty has touched new all-time high today on the back of optimism due to continued improvement in economic activities. There has been a significant improvement in economic activities led by services in September given further relaxation in restrictions due to significant decline in new Covid cases. Expectation of further improvement in demand during the ongoing festive season along with strong FII and DII flows are also supporting the rally. However any further deterioration in the global energy crisis will lead to higher energy prices and coal shortages for a longer period of time which can have an adverse impact on growth and is one of the key risks to the current market rally.

Rupee likely to swing back to 75.3 levels

Indian Rupee Spot weakened to 15-month low of 75.67 this week hurt by fears of elevated inflation amid surging crude oil prices and stronger dollar. Domestic equities hitting all-time highs could not provide a cushion either. Having said that, India’s CPI fell to five-month low in September at 4.35%, well within RBI’s comfort zone of 2% – 6%, providing RBI scope to continue with its accommodative policy stance to achieve sustainable economic recovery. With investors keenly awaiting US retail sales, inflation and FOMC meeting minutes due this week, we may see dollar trade range bound between 94.2 and 94.6 and so Rupee is likely to swing back to 75.3 levels with a broader trading range of 75-75.5 for the coming sessions.

Industrial production in Aug’21 surpassed the Aug’19 level for all but durables. Past bunching up computer sales seem to be depressing durables. The onset of the festival and marriage season offers hope. India recorded 11.9% industrial growth in Aug’21, in line with the consensus expectation. The slow opening up since mid-May’20, post the national lockdown, created a subdued base. The peaking of the second wave in early May’21 also helped improve sequential growth. Anand Rathi
