  1. 1. CURRENCY OUTLOOK 6th January, 2013 SWASTIKA INTELLIGENCE GROUP MARKET OVERVIEW Rupee remained volatile this week taking cues from strength in the dollar index and more than expected positive economic data from USA. Higher treasury yield in the US also led to weakness in rupee which touched its one month low against the dollar this week but recovered a little after possible intervention by the RBI. Domestically, weak Indian market sentiments and poor manufacturing and services PMI data which stood at 50.7 and 48.5 respectively. FIIs invested a total of Rs. 132.56 crores in the cash and derivatives market of India on Friday. USD INR Rupee gained 0.13 percent against the dollar in futures on Friday and closed at 62.1725. The spot rate is currently at 62.16. India's fiscal deficit in the April-November period reached 94 per cent of the targeted budgetary estimate of Rs 5.42 lakh crore. Dollar Index closed at 80.8680 rising by 0.30 percent from the previous close. The benchmark US 10-year note yield remained near 3 percent for the week. It reached 3.05 percent yesterday, the highest since July 2011, before ending the day at 2.99 percent. Overall, we expect the rupee to trade on a week note against the dollar taking cues from poor domestic market sentiments, high US treasury yields, stronger dollar index and Fed Tapering by $10 billion in January 2014. Technical Outlook: As seen on the daily chart, USDINR has breached the down sloping trend line resistance and has also given a breakout from the bullish inverse head and shoulders formation. It is likely that the counter has taken support at 62.51 levels and will bounce upwards till the resistance at 63.35 mark in the coming week. If it comes back into the channel below 62.51, then 62.01 is a crucial support.

The spot rupee closed at 84.48. European Central Bank said that Euro Zone M3 Money Supply rose to 1.5%, from 1.4% in the preceding month. The dollar largely held on to gains against the euro and the pound this week, boosted by expectations that U.S. economic growth this year will outpace the recovery in Europe and other regions. Overall, it is expected that rupee will trade on a neutral to negative note against the Euro due to positive economic data from the Euro zone. However, strength in dollar index causing international weakness in Euro may cap sharp gains in Euro in India. Technical Outlook: As seen on the daily chart EURINR is trading in a range since the past many trading sessions and is taking support at 85.31 level. On the upside, 85.89 is a crucial resistance for the counter and 85.06 is a crucial support on the downside.

The Markit/CIPS construction PMI fell to 62.1 in December from November's reading of 62.6. Overall, we expect rupee to trade on a neutral to negative note against the GBP taking cues poor domestic market sentiments. However, weakness in pound due to less than expected positive economic data from UK may cap sharp gains in the pound. Technical Outlook: As seen on the weekly chart, GBPINR is moving in an upwards sloping channel. It is likely that the counter will move higher till the 104 mark in the coming week.
