    Currency market viewpoint

    Quoting on the currency market today, Rahul Gupta, Currency Research Head, Emkay Global Financial Services Limited commented,“During early trades, rupee surged to 8-week high of 70.36, however, the gains got capped by RBI intervention. Also, globally risk appetite has plunged US-China trade concerns continue to linger. There is a possibility that US may curb investments in China. Thus, as we near Oct 10, any developments on US-China trade front will keep rupee under pressure.  

    He added,"Technically, the RSI indicator is showing USD/INR to be in an over sold zone, so we expect prices to move towards 71.50 in the coming days. This week we have RBI policy and ahead of that rupee will remain on edge, we expect RBI to cut rates by 25 bps.”
