Currency News, Research and Forecasts for U.S. dollar and Indian rupee

Whenever you are interested in an exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies due to the fact that the value of a currency must always be quoted in comparison to a second currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the USD vs INR, you should pay attention to both U.S. dollar and Indian rupee news and forecasts.

U.S. dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

It was a fine run for the dollar during the six-week period ending May 25th – the day of this report. The Dollar Index never looked back after breaking from a pocket of congestion in the final week of April. The index ended this period achieving a six-month high of 94.3. The dollar benefited from higher US yields.

Against individual currencies, within this timeframe the dollar was impressive against the euro, which fell to buy only 1.165 dollars, from levels near 1.24; against the pound, which fell to buy 1.33 dollars, from 1.44; and against the New Zealand dollar, which fell to 0.69 from 0.738.

A warning on the dollar’s medium-term outlook was offered in May by Citibank. The bank argues that downward pressure on the dollar will resume because Washington’s planned fiscal spending will cause a further deterioration in the US’ twin deficits. The dollar might have 5 percent downside over 6-12 months and 10 percent downside in the long run, a Citi analyst said.

In the coming month, supporting the dollar against growth-sensitive currencies, which include CAD, AUD, NZD, SEK, NOK, SGD and most of the emerging market currencies, will be developments surrounding global trade. In May, trade tensions resurfaced after the US Commerce Department announced it would investigate automobile imports. In 2018, Washington had already announced tariffs on aluminium and steel imports, angering much of the rest of the world.

Indian rupee (INR) - Market news and forecasts

The Indian rupee has been under significant pressure in 2018. Versus the dollar, it stood in mid-July at levels in the low 68s, down 6.5 percent on the year and at historically weak levels (all-time low is at 69.52). However, in July, forecasters became more optimistic on the rupee’s prospects.

Emirates NBD – among the most accurate rupee forecasters according to Bloomberg – said in July that the rupee would likely strengthen to 67 per dollar by year-end. Factors weighing on the rupee might have run their course, Emirates said.

Weighing on the rupee had been the strong dollar, but the dollar bull run might be nearing an end; and high oil prices, but these slumped in mid-July amid increased supply.

Supporting the rupee will be additional interest rate hikes by the Reserve Bank of India, thinks HSBC. In June, the RBI raised rates for the first time in four years in order to rein in above-target inflation.

The rupee would likely depreciate to new all-time lows upon the development of a full-blown global trade war, which appeared possible in July after massive US tariffs were proposed.
