"Minutes of the latest Fed meeting indicated that most Fed members were in support of slowing the pace of rate hikes but 'various' Fed members saw rates peaking at higher levels. The consensus however seems to be to see the lagged impact of the hikes done so far reflect in the data. Fed members therefore seem wary of continuing with aggressive rate hikes from here on. It is highly likely that we would see a downshift if not a pivot," explained Abhishek Goenka, Founder and CEO, IFA GLobal.
Amit Pabari, Managing Director at CR Forex pointed out that the four percent correction in brent crude oil prices could help support rupee as oil import bills could be reduced and thus helps a trade balance. "Technically, the USD-INR pair is finding resistance near 81.80 to 82.20, which was acting as support earlier. So, from here, we could expect the pair to resume its downtrend towards 81.30 to 81.00 levels in the near term and further towards 80.50 over the medium term," Pabari said.
