US Dollar Index
US Dollar Index (DX) traded on a flat note and depreciated marginally in yesterday’s trading session on account of rise in risk appetite in the global market sentiments which led to decline in demand for the low yielding currency. Apart from that, rise in the German and the European investor’s confidence data coupled with US markets trading on a positive note also exerted downside pressure on the DX. However, sharp downside in the currency was cushioned on the back of US Housing Market Index data coming on unfavorable note. The currency touched an intra-day low of 80.51 and closed at 80.55 on Tuesday.

Dollar/INR
The Indian Rupee appreciated marginally in the last trading hour on Monday taking cues from late foreign fund inflows coupled with selling of dollars from exporters. Apart from that, upbeat domestic market sentiments also supported an upside in the currency. However, major part of the day the currency remained depreciated on account of dollar demand from oil importers coupled with strength in the DX. Further, statement from country’s central bank chief on Saturday said that there is limited scope for monetary easing which also exerted downside pressure on the currency. It touched an intraday high of 54.14 and closed at 54.185 against dollar on Monday. For the month of February 2013, FII inflows totaled at Rs.21,428.10 crores ($4,019.48 million) as on 18th February 2013. Year to date basis, net capital inflows stood at Rs.43,487.10 crores ($8,078.80 million) till th 18 February 2013. Outlook From the intra-day perspective, we expect Indian Rupee to appreciate on the back of upbeat global market sentiments coupled with weakness in the DX. However, sharp upside in the currency will be capped as a result of dollar demand from oil importers.

The Sterling Pound depreciated around 0.3 percent in yesterday’s trading session. However, weakness in the DX along with rise in risk appetite in the global market sentiments cushioned sharp fall in the currency. The Sterling Pound touched an intra-day low of 1.5413 and closed at 1.5422 against dollar on Tuesday. Outlook We expect the Sterling Pound to trade on a positive note in today’s trade on the back of upbeat global market sentiments coupled with weakness in the DX. Additionally, country’s unemployment rate and average earnings index is expected to come on a favorable note which will also support an upside in the currency. However, Claimant Count Change is expected to decline but would be less than previous which will cap sharp gains of even reversal in the currency. Technical Outlook

JPY/INR
JPY (% change) The Japanese Yen appreciated by 0.4 percent yesterday on the back of rise in risk aversion in the global market sentiments in the early part of the trade which will lead to increase in demand for the low yielding currency. Japan’s Trade Balance was at a deficit of 0.68 trillion Yen in January as against a previous deficit of 0.78 trillion Yen a month ago. The Yen touched an intra-day high of 93.27 and closed at 93.56 against dollar on Tuesday. Outlook For the intra-day, we expect yen to depreciate taking cues from rise in risk appetite in the global market sentiments which will lead to fall in demand for the low yielding currency. Further, downside in the currency will be seen as a result of country’s trade balance data coming on a negative note. Technical Outlook
