Rupee opens flat at 74.95 per dollar

10 August 2020


Indian rupee opened flat at 74.95 per dollar on Monday against Friday's close of 74.93.


At 10:05 IST, the Sensex was up 309.02 points or 0.81% at 38349.59, and the Nifty was up 96.10 points or 0.86% at 11310.10.


"The risk-off mood due to US-China trade war and coronavirus concerns have kept USDINR spot above the crucial support of 74.75. Also, it is respecting the immediate resistance of 75.20, only sustained FII selling from equity segment will push the USDINR spot higher," said Rahul Gupta, Head of Research- Currency, Emkay Global Financial Services."We have to see how US-China trade negotiations take place, along with today's US NFP data as investors await a clearer picture of the heath of US economy. So for this week, we expect the broader range to be 74.60-75.30," he added.


Oil prices climbed in early trade on Monday, clawing back over half of Friday’s losses, on hopes for a stimulus deal to shore up the US economic recovery and a pledge from Iraq to deepen its crude oil supply cuts.The US dollar was trying to keep a rare rally together on Monday as its longest losing streak in a decade left much of the market structurally short of the currency and vulnerable to a squeeze on any upbeat news.The dollar index is alternating gains with losses in the second half of the week, near the key 93.00 mark and against the backdrop of the solid sentiment in the risk-associated universe. However, any major reversal may be considered only above 94 levels for dollar index, said ICICIdirect.The dollar-rupee contract on the NSE was at 75.12 in the last session. The open interest in August series declined by 1.5% while it increased almost 5% in the next series, it added.
