World Markets at a GlanceFX Insights

Indian Rupee

The Indian rupee was expected to open marginally higher after the Reserve Bank of India pledged to phase in rate hikes to combat stubbornly high inflation, but risk aversion in broader markets was likely to limit any significant advance.

The rupee is expected to open at 79.70, slightly higher than the previous session’s 79.74. Last week, the local currency rose to near the 79 level before reverting to the middle of its recent trading range.

Technical Analysis

The current level is 79.66. 

In the daily chart,  first support is placed at 79.40  ( 50 day moving average and lower Bollinger band). The break of 79.40 will take the pair towards 79.15 ( Last weeks low).

The First Resistance is at 79.90, which is  previous high. If it breaks 79.90, then we can see 80.02, which is upper bollinger band.

In technical indicators, RSI is at 51.46 and is flat.

MACD is now narrow and is flat.

On Monday, the dollar edged up to 143.08 yen, retreating from a recent 24-year high of 144.99 in the face of increasingly strident intervention warnings from Japanese policymakers.

The euro was trading at $1.1009, having risen from a recent low of $0.9865 as a result of the European Central Bank’s increasingly hawkish comments.

The dollar was steady against a basket of currencies at 109.68, just off a two-decade high of 110.79 earlier this month.

Equity Insights

Indian Equity 

The market is expected to open in the green, with the SGX Nifty indicating a positive start for India’s broader index with a gain of 43 points.

At the close on Friday, the BSE Sensex fell nearly 1,100 points to 58,841, while the Nifty50 fell nearly 350 points to 17,531 and formed a bearish candlestick pattern on the daily charts. If we look at the last three days of trading, we can see that a Dark Cloud Cover pattern formed, indicating that the market is still bearish.

According to the pivot charts, the Nifty’s key support level is 17,412, followed by 17,293. If the index continues to rise, the key resistance levels to watch are 17,735 and 17,939.
