Forex pair update for the week 22 to 26 May 2023


Past week saw a sharp spike towards 82.80. As noted in the previous blog the previous weekly candle shows signs of reversal and it proved to be right by the spike. Now that the market would be happy to see 82.20 as safer level to hedge the Imports. Only a close below 81.70 favors further lower levels. At least for the moment, it appears that the pair seems to be in no mood to breach 81.70 on a closing basis. In such scenario we may expect a consolidation between 82.10 and 83.10. There could be choppy moves within this range. A close outside this range requires re-assessment of risk/direction and target. Market is expecting 82.10-83.10 will be protected. The pair has a tendency to make surprise moves when most in the market do not expect.

A few more observations:

  • The raising upward channel indicate the broader range of 77.10-83.30.
  • Neither the moves in Dollar Index-DXY nor the equity have direct correlation.
  • The currency pair seems to be trying to make one more attempt towards 83.
  • As noted in the previous blog, continue to keep the following input for quick reference.
    The 82.75-83.25(with error adjustments) zone is the Fib projection of July 2011 to July 2013. Hence, the importance. If breached, we may see another spike towards 85.70.
    This range is continuing to be protected
    Deeper correction is long overdue
    Unlike in the past, the Imports (mainly the oil) are being hedged as and when there are lower prices in Oil and/or lower prices in the currency pair

With this back drop it would be preferable to hedge the outward remittances on decline towards 82.45 or lower if seen. Current currency exchange rate of USD/INR is 82.87.


Current EURINR exchange rate is 89.52. The currency pair managed to overcome the selling pressure and managed to post a green candle. Well supported at 88.70 zone. The currency pair is likely to face selling pressure till the pair manages to close above 90 levels. The pair seem to have failed in its first attempt to break a flag formation. Expected to undergo consolidation phase between 88.00 & 91.00. Any breach of the range would lead to 100 pips move.

From a remittance perspective it would be prudent to book any outward remittances on slide towards 88.00 levels and the inward remittances by selling EUR currency against INR around 91.00 or higher if seen.


The GBPINR currency pair moved in a narrow range which is a kind of consolidation after the break-out from the downward sloping trend channel and moving in an upward channel. The pair has formed a bullish candle. Current exchange rate of GBPINR is 103.13. The currency pair is facing strong resistance at 104.00 levels. Likely range would be 102.20-104.00 with choppy moves on either side. It may be prudent to liquidate/hedge outward remittances on any slide towards 102.20 levels by buying GBP currency against INR. it is desirable to hedge inward remittances on any spike to 104.00 or higher levels if seen.

Any close outside the range of 102.20 & 104.00 might see the pair by at least 100 pips in the direction of breach and there would be a need for re-assessment of risk.


The current exchange rate of AEDINR is 22.58. AEDINR pair mirrors the USDINR moves. The crucial resistance at 22.65 is holding for now. The pair is expected to consolidate between 22.40 and 22.65. We may have to watch for breach on either side for a new 30 pips range.

With this theme in mind the outward remittances may be hedged at the current levels or on any decline towards 22.40.


The current Exchange rate of THB currency against INR is at 2.4142. Though the pair attempted 2.4400, it could not sustain and came under selling pressure. Expect 2.4000 to provide good support and can expect the buying interest on every decline. Expect a consolidation between 2.4000-2.4400. Only a break on either side would decide the direction and target.

The outward remittances can be hedged on any decline towards 2.4000 or lower if seen and inward remittances on any spike towards 2.4400.


The current exchange rate of CAD/INR currency pair is 61.38. The pair posted a bullish candle. The pair has a characteristic of making alternate Green and Red candles. The range expected for the current week is in a band of 61.10-62.10.

With this back drop its wiser to hedge the inward remittances by selling CAD currency against INR on any spike closer to 62.10 or above and hedge the outward remittances by buy CAD currency on any decline closer to the lower end of the range.


Current exchange rate of MYRINR currency pair is 18.25. The currency pair is on its recovery path. The pair has a crucial support at 18.05 followed by 17.85 and resistance at 18.50. Expect the base of 18.05 to hold and favour a consolidation between 18.05-18.50. Any break on either side would decide the direction and target. Preferable to hedge the commitments of outwards remittances on any decline towards 18.05 or lower if seen. Also suggested to hedge the inward remittance close to 18.50 or higher levels if seen.
