Indian Rupee Update ~ 21st Jan'16

Hey Traders,

Hope you are doing great and enjoying !!

Well here you go with my update on Indian Rupee.

As Oil fell from 30 to 27 levels, Dow fell more than 500 points before recovering and closing 1.6% down. Lackluster US data along with market sentiments led to a steep fall in yields for USTs across the curve. The late recovery in the US session has led to a mild improvement in sentiment in the Asian session with oil also registering at 4% bounce. Yesterday the Bank of Canada disappointed markets by not cutting rates further. Today we have the ECB announcement, while the ECB is expected to be balanced to dovish it is unlikely that they will do incremental easing in two successive months.

Since the beginning of this week USDCNH has gradually moved higher. Emerging market currencies today morning have registered mild appreciation which is reflected in a lower USDINR opening. USDINR 1M ndf is near flat. I would expect trend continuation and equities to remain fragile. Currencies in turn …

Hey Traders ,

Hope you are doing great and enjoying !!

Well, Pls find enclosed Projections on Japanese Yen.

As the tendency for USD and JPY to react to fluctuations in Risk sentiment in the same direction has strengthened. USD/JPY has stuck to a narrow range over the period. However, at the same time, JPY has appreciated against the majors other than NZD over the period and Appreciated by 1% in trade-weighted terms.

This month, we will have two BoJ monetary policy meetings and we now expect the BoJ to conduct additional monetary easing (QQE3) at the October 30 meeting, which will be accompanied by semiannual Outlook Report, though it seems to be close call (previously, we had expected the BoJ would act in January or April next year). With a series of weak Japanese data released in recent weeks, we have revised Down Japan’s 3Q GDP growth forecast to -1.0% q/q Saar from +0.8%, meaning Japan will experience a technical recession.
Although QQE1 (April 2013) and QQE2 (October 2014) triggere…
