USD/INR down on G-20 positives but higher oil, dlr support

1 July 2019 / Morning Brief

Indian Rupee

  • The Indian rupee little changed at 68.89 pair now at 68.89 against 69.0150 previous close.
  • Pair to tip in 68.75-69.10 range today.
  • Dollar/rupee opened down on Monday as increased prospects of foreign portfolio inflows to local assets weighed, but the surge in crude oil and a broadly stronger dollar supported the pair. The G-20 result was overall risk supportive and that helped the rupee's stronger opening today. But the dollar has strengthened as the trade war-related pressure on the Fed to cut rates has somewhat eased and oil has surged after producers have decided to keep supplies restricted, he said, adding that these conditions will act as a support for the USD/INR.
