Currency Views for the Week 23 Jan – 27 Jan 2023-Venkat's Blog


The pair came under continued selling pressure. While the pair attempted to scale higher of 81.88 levels, it got sold-off again. The crucial support at 81.10 also gave up. The momentum is likely to continue and any pull back towards the trend line resistance at 81.80 and 82.20 is likely to see selling pressure. Break below 80.90 can trigger further stops being hit to see the pair drift towards 80.50 and then to 80.20. Most likely scenario would be a consolidation between 80.20 and 81.50. A close outside this range requires re-assessment of risk/direction and target.

A few more observations:

  • Steep trend line broken
  • The correlation between DXY and USDINR is not currently active and any spike in DXY need not necessarily impact this pair
  • though the Dollar Index-DXY is likely to hover in the familiar range of 102-105
  • The raising upward channel indicate the broader range of 80.10-83.10
  • The increased volatility and wild swings likely to continue

With this back drop it would be preferable to hedge the outward remittances on decline towards 80.20 or lower if seen. Current exchange rate of USD/INR is 80.97.

A break below 87.40 on closing basis could make the pair drift lower towards 86.50. Ensuing week is crucial for the pair to sustain the higher levels or give way for a correction/consolidation phase. We can expect a consolidation between 86.50-89.60. Any breach on either side on a daily closing basis would require re-assessment of risk. It is prudent to look for key levels to hedge the risk.

From a remittance perspective it would be prudent to book any outward remittances on slide towards 86.50 levels and the inward remittances by selling EUR currency against INR around 88.60 or higher if seen.
