The Indian rupee is expected to open higher against the US dollar, following the Bank of England’s decision to buy long-dated British bonds, which caused Treasury yields and the dollar index to fall.
In early trades, the rupee is expected to trade at around 81.60-81.65 per dollar, up from a record low of 81.94 on Wednesday. Despite likely intervention by the Reserve Bank of India, the rupee has fallen nearly 3% in the last six sessions.
The rupee came perilously close to breaking through the 82-per-dollar mark on Wednesday, as comments from various Federal Reserve officials suggested that the US central bank’s policy tightening cycle had a long way to go.
On Wednesday, the rupee fell 0.4 percent to a new low of 81.94 per US dollar. The domestic currency fell to an intra-day low of 81.95 per dollar after settling at 81.58 per dollar on Tuesday.
Without the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) heavy market interventions in the latter half of trade, the rupee would have fallen well below the 82/$1 level . The central bank is estimated to have sold more than $1 billion in the spot market on Wednesday to protect 82.00 levels
The current level is 81.59.

In technical indicators, RSI is at 72.30 and is now overbought.
MACD is also very wide and Bollinger band is also very wide.
