Fed is likely to raise interest rates by 50bps and announce plans to reduce its $9 trillion balance sheet in its upcoming policy meet. More focus will be on comments about how high interest rates might rise beyond this year to combat stubbornly high inflation. US$INR (May) is expected to trade in a range of 76.45-76.85.”

“USDINR spot closed 9 paise higher at 76.52, in a day of lackluster trading. With a truncated week, traders are staying away from taking large bets ahead of US FOMC meeting on Wednesday. Our bias continues to be a range, between 76 and 77. Strong US Dollar Index and fragile equity markets are USD supportive, whereas RBI intervention and LIC related flows are Rupee positive. Therefore, it can be rangebound.”

“Rupee continued to trade in a narrow range despite weakness in domestic and global equities and strength in the dollar against its major crosses. Market participants remained cautious ahead of the important FOMC policy statement. Expectation is that the central bank could raise rates by 50bps and also maintain a hawkish stance. The Fed is also expected to make an announcement on the balance sheet trimming and that is likely to extend further gains for the dollar. From the US, private payrolls number too will be released today and could set a platform for the non-farm payrolls number that will be released on Friday. We expect the USDINR(Spot) to trade sideways and quote in the range of 76.20 and 76.80.”
