The Indian Rupee is expected to open on a flat note and is likely to trade in the range of 72.90-73.30 zone for the day. Over last four trading sessions, IPO, corporate borrowing and MSCI month-end rebalancing flows were continuously supporting the Rupee against dollar. To name a few, *Adani green raised $750 mln, Axis bank raised $600 mln and SBI raised $550 mln via overseas AT1 bond sale. However, the difference between the last two trading sessions of August month and the first two trading sessions of the current month is the central bank’s intervention. It seems that RBI has absorbed & supported the 72.90 levels and will not tolerate any further gains beyond the same levels. On the data front, rising India’s trade deficit and weakness in manufacturing PMI despite lower cases in India doesn’t support the Rupee’s rally and odds of depreciation increases from the current level.

COMEX gold trades marginally higher near $1815/oz after a 0.2% decline yesterday. Gold trades higher supported by weaker US dollar and safe haven buying amid mixed economic data, slowdown in China, persisting virus risks and rising inflationary pressure. However, weighing on price is weaker investor interest as is evident from continuing ETF outflows. Firmness in equities has also reduced gold’s appeal as an alternative asset. Gold may remain choppy amid Fed uncertainty but increasing risks to global economic recovery may keep prices supported. Ravindra Rao, CMT, EPAT, VP- Head Commodity Research, Kotak Securities

We know from experience that markets can surprise – both on the upside and downside. Greed and fear can cause overreaction on the upside and downside. From the valuation perspective, now we are in the over-valued zone; but excesses can sustain in a ferocious bull market like the present one. So the only option before long-term investors is to remain invested and occasionally book some profits and move money to safe fixed-income assets. It is possible that by the end of this financial year Nifty may be around the present level or lower than that. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services
