The Dollar Index rose sharply above 106, contrary to seeing a fall towards 105 and it is now likely to head towards 106.5-107. Meanwhile, the Euro is expected to test the support at 1.06. EURJPY continues to trade within 165-162 region while USDJPY failed to sustain above 154.80 and can now decline towards 153/152 soon. Aussie and Pound have declined below their respective supports and are likely to test 0.63 and 1.23 respectively. USDCNY has risen past 7.24 but could face rejection around current levels else can test 7.25. EURINR could rise towards the upper end of the 88-90 range. In USDINR, we need to be cautious around 83.50/55. Break above 83.55 will take it towards 83.60/70.

Dollar Index (106.285) reversed from 105.74 itself and moved above 106, contrary to our expectations of seeing a fall towards 105. While above 106, a test to 106.5-107 looks likely.

EURUSD (1.0618) fell sharply from 1.0690, holind below 1.07 and could re-test 1.06 in the near term , keeping a sideways range of 1.06-1.07 for a while. thereafter a break on either side would decide the further course of direction.

EURJPY (163.29) held well below the resistance at 165. An immediate range of 165-162 may hold for the next few sessions.

Dollar-Yen (153.87) had been ranged over this week, unable to rise past 154.80. The current fall may extend towards 153/152 with upside limited to 155 in the near term.

USDCNY (7.2420) has risen past 7.24, contrary to our expectation of seeing a range of 7.22-7.24 for a while. The current upmove can take it higher towards 7.25 but thereafter, only a decisive break past 7.25 can make the outlook bullish for the medium term.

The expected rise in Aussie (0.6375) to 0.65/6550 did not happen and instead, it started to decline towards 0.63 much earlier than anticipated. We expect the downside to be limited to weekly support at 0.63 and see a medium-term rise towards 0.64-0.65 again.

Pound (1.24) is declining as expected and could soon test 1.2350/23 on the downside.

USDINR (83.5425) has managed to close above 83.50 and has a fair chances of rising further towards 83.60/70 if it sustains above 83.50. The immediate view is bullish above 83.50.

EURINR (88.8730) has declined a bit but while above 88/88.50, we are keeping our view intact to see a rise towards 90. We expect the 88-90 range to hold for now.


The US Treasury yields have inched. The bias remains positive to see more rise from here. Need to see if a strong follow-through rise is happening from here or not.

The US 10Yr (4.61%) and the 30Yr (4.72%) yields have inched up slightly. If the 10Yr sustains above 4.6%, a rise to 4.75%-4.8% is possible and that will avoid falling back to 4.4%. The 30Yr can test 4.8% and the price action thereafter will need a watch.

The German 10Yr (2.49%) and the 30Yr (2.62%) yields have just broken their 2.2%-2.45% (10Yr) and (2.4%-2.6%) range on the upside. While this sustains, a rise to 2.6% (10Yr) and 2.75%-2.8% (30Yr) can be seen in the coming days.
