Rupee Impact: Why the Euro can’t fall enough for the Rupee

The Euro of course is at 1.26 and the Rupee, happy kept its level to the Euro as benchmark for Dollar’s movements against the Rupee has gladly tempered this rise of the Euro to 70.40 in morning trades ( Interbank rates at 70.4, nse can run at a retail premium to 20 basis points – not just points)

The Dollar’s weakness in the week of more QE ahead of Greek elections has been shortlived hopefully because the QE rumor is a shortlived one, however, the Fed would extend its support thru Central Bank swaps ( see advantages.us – It’s for sure another LTRO, but QE? ) Anyway it means the system would be awash with liquidity and Gold, Silver and Oil are back on the (upward) run. That is another week of respite for the Dollar index hardly corrected from its peak in the first 3 days to 82.5 and no falling rapidly, with the Euro 1.26 levels likely to be a strong support in a liquidly able banking system funded from Europe, other G20 or the US

The Rupee is likely to breach 55 on the long side if the trend lasts long enough and the fall for the dollar may not be a one way street in the Indian FX markets as the USD is defacto the only currency traded including cross rates to Euro and JPY good reference for currency moves and the Revenue account

having limited avenues for Dollar speculation, Hot money flows still find a way to keep the Rupee excessively week

MidCap IT is ebullient at the improvement in Margins but unfortunately for the lean prospects of IT the Rupee is unlikely to help more than the 26% depreciation at its ‘peak’ of 56.50  to the US Dollar
