  • Pair to tip in 70.80-71.10 range today.
  • Dollar/rupee opened up Monday tracking higher crude oil prices amid a strong dollar. Rupee opened down on strong dollar and high crude oil prices.

Brent Crude oil futures for November delivery traded 1.04% up at $64.95 a barrel.

Global Currency

  • The dollar was supported on Monday, with the market's risk appetite delicately balanced after talks in Washington between U.S. and Chinese trade deputies were described as "productive. The dollar gained against the safe-haven yen, but edged lower versus trade-exposed currencies, such as the Australian and New Zealand dollars, which rallied on the cautious risk-on mood.
  • The British pound GBP held at $1.2476 after dropping from a two-month high on Friday when Ireland's foreign minister said Britain and the European Union were not yet close to a Brexit deal. U.S.-China trade breakthrough had seemed unlikely after President Donald Trump told reporters on Friday he was not looking for a partial deal, and Chinese officials then cancelled goodwill visits to U.S. farmers.
