TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
After a blowout of US NFP data, the test case on US inflation has come back again and the anxiety is jolting the global risk appetite. Traders are gravitating around the dollar as the market expects US CPI to rise by 3.6% in April, largest increase in almost a decade.
If the inflation figure comes in line with market expectations then bets for a monetary tightening sooner than expected will push the USDINR spot prices even higher. But if it falls short of the forecast, then dollar will continue to remain subdued with a downside pressure on USDINR spot.
