- USD/INR extends its losses on the third day, driven by the anticipation of a dovish Fed policy in September.
- Upbeat Gift Nifty is underpinning the Indian Rupee (INR).
- Improved US Treasury yields could support the US Dollar (USD).
- US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has conveyed her confidence in controlling inflation without affecting the labor market.
USD/INR trades lower around 82.80 during the Asian session on Monday, extending losses for the third successive day. The pair faces downward pressure because the likelihood of the US Federal Reserve (Fed) keeping interest rates unchanged in the upcoming September meeting increased.
Additionally, the continuous rise in the Gift Nifty is contributing support to underpin the Indian Rupee (INR). The dollar-denominated futures contract based on the Nifty 50 index, trades higher around 19985.0. Moreover, investors will closely monitor the response of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to potential volatility. The central bank’s actions and statements can have a significant impact on market stability and investor confidence.
US Dollar Index (DXY), which compares the performance of US Dollar (USD) against six other major currencies, trades lower around 104.70. However, Improved US Treasury yields could provide support to the strength of the Greenback. The yields on 10-year US Treasury bonds rose to 4.29%, up by 0.70% at the time of writing.
Moreover, US Initial Jobless Claims data for the week ending September 2 showed a figure of 216K, better than the market expectations of 234K and coming in lower than the revised figure of 229K from the previous week. This favorable labor market data could play a role in shoring up the resilience of the US dollar.
Following her attendance at the G20 Summit, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen conveyed an increasing level of confidence in the United States’ ability to handle inflation without causing significant harm to the job market. Yellen also noted, “Every measure of inflation is on the road down,” suggesting an expectation for a decline in various inflation indicators.
Chicago Fed Bank President Austan Goolsbee has articulated the objective of the US Federal Reserve (Fed) to guide the economy onto a “golden path.” This path represents a situation in which inflation decreases without triggering a recession, a challenging equilibrium that central banks frequently aim for to sustain economic stability and growth.
Investors will likely monitor the upcoming data of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for August from both the US and India, scheduled to be released later in the week. These datasets are expected to provide valuable insights into the inflation scenarios of both economies and could influence investor decisions regarding the USD/INR pair.
