Indian Rupee hits a fresh low against the USD
The Indian Rupees hits a fresh low against the USD in the early morning trade today. Experts had expected the Indian currency to open near a record low of 77.80 and expected it to trade in a range of 77.60 to 78.00 with a weakening bias. The Rupee was currently trading at 77.81. Experts suggest that higher than expected US inflation could again send US yields higher, equities lower and the US dollar higher against the DM and EM currencies. Against this backdrop, RBI’s approach could suppress the aggressive volatility and rates. Overall, they expect the pair to face resistance near 77.80-77.85 levels. If it convincingly trades above this level then further move towards 78-78.10 can be expected. On flipside, 77.40-50 zone will act as a crucial short-term support.

Domestic equity markets may see a sharp fall in early Friday trades amid weakness across the global markets. Soaring inflation, recession fears, and the prospect of the Federal Reserve getting even more hawkish is making investors nervous worldwide. The negativity can also be attributed to yesterday’s weak session at European stock markets which closed sharply lower, with Germany’s DAX retreating 1.7% after the ECB set the path to start raising borrowing costs next month. ECB confirmed asset purchases will end from July 1st and a 25bps rate hike will follow in July as well. The U.S 10-year Treasury which has already doubled this year to roughly 3%, is expected to flirt with 4% by the end of 2022. Even if Nifty moves up, the overwhelming trend is down. Nifty’s immediate downside risk is seen at 16121 mark.

The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits increased to the highest level in nearly five months last week, but that likely does not mark a material shift in labour market conditions, which remain extremely tight. The report from the Labor Department on Thursday also showed unemployment rolls remained at a more than 52-year low at the end of May, underscoring the jobs market’s strength.

IMF expects further cut in global growth outlook:

The International Monetary Fund expects to further cut its forecast for global economic growth in 2022 next month, an IMF spokesperson said on Thursday, following moves by the World Bank and Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to cut their own forecasts this week.

Most rated companies have buffers to withstand further 10-15% rupee depreciation: Moody’s

Moody’s Investors Service on Thursday said most rated companies in India have buffers to withstand a further 10-15 percent depreciation of the rupee. The rupee depreciated by 8 paise to close at 77.76 against the US dollar on Thursday, weighed down by elevated crude oil prices and persistent foreign capital outflows.

In a statement, Moody’s said the rupee has depreciated around 4.5 percent since the start of the year. Higher energy prices and interest rates in developed economies have led to capital outflows and rising commodity prices, pressuring the rupee.
