USDINR can trade within 83.10-82.80/70 and needs a clear breakout on either side for further direction clarity. On the charts upside scope is visible till 83.30.

Aussie (0.6401) has fallen back sharply after a brief rise to 0.6450 seen over the last few sessions. A decline back to 0.6350 cannot be ruled out.

Pound (1.2481) has also fallen as expected and can target 1.2450-1.24 soon.

USDRUB (96.0093) limited its fall to 92.8820 before bouncing back sharply to current levels of 96. A re-attempt to rise towards 98/99 cannot be ruled out in the next few sessions.

The US Treasury yields remain stable and higher. Looks like the market is waiting to see the US CPI data release today. Broadly the picture is bullish, and the yields can rise more. The German yields sustain higher and are keeping intact our bullish view. Further rise is possible from here. The 10Yr and 5Yr GoI have dipped but supports can limit the downside. View is bullish and there is room to rise further.

The US 10Yr (4.29%) and the 30Yr (4.36%) yields remain stable and higher. While above the support at 4.1%-4% (10Yr) and 4.2%-4.1% (30Yr), the view remains bullish to see 4.4% (10Yr) and 4.4%-4.5% (30Yr) on the upside first and then 4.5%-4.6% (10Yr) and 4.6%-4.7% (30Yr) eventually.

The German 10Yr (2.64%) and the 30Yr (2.76%) yields sustain higher and remains bullish. A rise to 3%-3.1 can be seen going forward with intermediate dips.

The 10Yr GoI (7.2280%) and 5Yr GOI (7.2457%) have dipped but can get support around 7.2% and 7.23% respectively. View remains bullish to see 7.35% (10Yr) and 7.3% and 7.45% (5Yr).


Dow Jones seems to lack a strong follow-through buying. DAX is stuck within its 15500-16100 range. Nifty has come down after opening with a wide gap-up but the support at 19900-19850 region is likely to limit the downside. Nikkei has risen back but could face rejections from 33000. Shanghai is bearish while it remains below the resistance at 3150.

Dow (34635.99, -0.05%) seems to lack a strong follow-through buying. We repeat, a strong rise above 34700 is needed to clear the way for 35500-36000. Else the Dow can remain vulnerable to test 34400-34200 again.

DAX (15715.53, -0.54%) continues to remain stuck within its 15500-16100 range. Outlook is unclear.

Nifty (19993.20, -0.02%) had come down after opening with a wide gap-up. Support is in the 19900-19850 region while above which the outlook remains bullish to see 20200-20400.

Nikkei (32694.55, -0.25%) has risen back after getting support at 32500. However, immediate resistance is at 33000. While that holds, we can expect a sideways trade within 33000 and 32000 for some time.

Shanghai (3119.56, -0.56%) is holding well below the resistance at 3150 (revised from 3160). While it remains below 3150, a fall towards 3100 or even lower towards 3070/3050 looks possible.


Brent and WTI have risen well and looks bullish to target $ 95 and $ 90 respectively in the near term. Gold has broken below the lower end of the 1940-1960 range and is likely to fall further from here. Silver remains stuck within 23-23.50 range. Copper has fallen back, failing to break above 3.80. Natural gas has risen sharply above 2.70 and has room to move up further towards 3.0. The outcome of US CPI data today would be crucial to watch as it could bring in volatility in the market.

Brent ($ 92.02) has risen well above $ 92 in line with expectations. View is bullish to see a rise towards $ 93-$ 95 in the near term.

WTI ($ 88.88) has risen sharply above $ 88. Bias is positive for a rise towards $ 90 while above the support at $ 85.

Silver (23.26) remains confined within 23-23.50 range. A break above 23.50 is needed to rise towards 24. Else it would be vulnerable to a break below 23 and fall towards the support at 22.70-22.50.

Copper (3.7840) has declined failing to break above 3.80 contrary to our view for a rise towards 3.85-3.87. It may trade within 3.70-3.80 for a while. Only a break higher could see a target of 3.85-3.87.

Natural Gas (2.7370) has risen well above 2.70. View remains bullish for a rise towards 2.8-3.0 while above the support at 2.5-2.45.
