Daily Rupee Call

 

The rupee (INR), after opening lower at 71.44 on Wednesday versus its previous close of 71.38, gained through the day and ended the session at 71.22 against the dollar (USD). Thus, the exchange rate of USDINR remains with the range between 71.2 and 71.4. There was not much change in the one-year forward spread of USDINR as it was 304.8 points against previous day’s 304.3 points.

If rupee currency retains yesterday’s bullish bias and breaches the resistance at 71.2, it will face a hindrance at the important level of 71 and at 70.75 above it. But if the local currency weakens and breaks below the critical support at 71.4, it will find support at 71.6.

Trade strategy:

Since 71.4 is a strong support, rupee has a good chance to appreciate. But it is capped by the resistance at 71.2. Hence, from trading perspective, one can buy rupee if it breaks out of the resistance at 71.2 and place stop loss at 71.4.

Supports: 71.4 and 71.6

Resistances: 71.2 and 71

Most of used vehicle finance branch manager and credit officer are with AU Small Finance Bank for more than five to six years and fully understand the company’s culture. They don’t hire fresher’s and all new joiner’s are allowed to underwrite after 6 months, till the time they are accompany by senior people.

Asian shares rise on China's policy easing, trade deal hopes

 

Asian shares kicked off the new decade higher on Thursday, after global stocks ended the previous one at record highs, and buoyed by Chinese markets after Beijing eased monetary policy to support slowing growth.

Investors also cheered news that the United States and China will sign a trade pact soon after a year of volatile negotiations between the world's two largest economies.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.35 per cent in morning trade after rising 5.6 per cent in December.

US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that Phase-1 of trade deal with China would be signed on January 15 at the White House, though uncertainty surrounds details about the agreement.

Rising hopes for a resolution to the US-China trade war helped propel global equities to record highs late last year and depress the value of the US dollar.

MSCI's all-country world index of stock performance in 49 nations touched an all-time high of 567.80 on December 27. It was last quoted at 565.46, off 0.41 per cent from that peak.
