Indian Rupee (INR) - Market news and forecasts

6-January-2019: Like other emerging market currencies, the Indian rupee was under significant pressure in 2018, during which it made an all-time low of ₹74.5 to the dollar and fell to a 4-1/2-year low versus the euro, at ₹86.15.

Following a solid fourth quarter, the rupee had risen by early January 2019 to a 4-month high versus the dollar of ₹69.36 — appreciation worth 7 percent from October’s low — and had recovered similarly versus the euro, to ₹79.29.

Among major problems for the rupee last year was the high price of oil, which raised India’s import bill substantially, but as luck would have it, the oil market experienced a complete reversal in Q4. A $30 per barrel (40 percent) plunge in the oil price was a blessing.

Political uncertainty (never good for a currency’s valuation) is likely to emerge in 2019; expectations are for a tough electoral battle for current Indian prime minister Narendra Modi.

Fitch predicted in January a 2019 year-end exchange rate of ₹75 to the dollar on the basis of further current account deterioration and tighter financing conditions.
