INR Futures

* After two days of consolidation, the rupee managed to gain 10 paise to end at 72.65 levels. We feel the rupee is likely to appreciate further

* The dollar index on Friday posted moderate losses. A rally in GBP/US$ on Friday to a new two and a three-fourth year high weighed on the dollar along with strength in other G-10 currencies against the dollar



Global Bonds

* The Nifty tumbled around 1% on Friday on the back of broad based selling across sectors. According to option chain, on the Put side 15000 Put has the highest OI. If it sustains below 15000 then, we may see continuance of the current fall

US$INR futures on NSE


* The US$INR future gained some momentum and ended near 72.63 levels. Looking at the writing in OTM strike Calls we feel upsides are limited and a close below 72.4 levels would open the gates for lower targets
