Currency News, Research and Forecasts for United States 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 United States Dollar and Indian Rupee news and forecasts.

United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

The US dollar is thriving in 2018. The world’s reserve currency had a dismal 2017, during which it shed 10 percent of its value. The Dollar Index’s move to a 1-year high of 96.30 in mid-August reclaimed around 40 percent of last year’s losses.

The dollar is the second-best performing major this year, bettered only by the Japanese yen. As safe havens, both currencies have been sought by investors – they are deemed the least risky among major international currencies. Investors have become more risk averse in recent months following chaos in emerging markets, led by Turkey and Argentina, and Washington’s massive tariffs on imported goods, which threaten global trade. More cause for dollar optimism came in August when data showed US core inflation at a 10-year high.

Dollar strength has pushed EUR/USD below 1.15 for the first time in a year, GBP/USD into the 1.27s, USD/CHF towards parity, and NZD/USD hurtles towards 0.65.

In August, SEB was forecasting end-of-September rates of: EUR/USD, 1.1; GBP/USD, 1.22; AUD/USD, 0.72.

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.

Why can't I just get the same USD/INR market rate I see on Google or in the Media?

When you look up the current United States Dollar to Indian Rupee exchange rate on the web the figure you find quoted on sites like google or mentioned on TV is commonly referred to as the mid-market rate.
