Crashing crude oil helps rupee gain 220 paise in 7 days; 3 major triggers
The continuous crash of international crude oil prices and foreign capital inflows have helped India rupee stand stronger against the US dollar over the past few weeks.
They also stated that the fresh foreign fund inflows and a steep fall of nearly 7 per cent in global crude prices to a one-year low on Tuesday buoyed rupee sentiments. In the last six trading sessions, the domestic unit has gained 143 paise.
3 key triggers for strengthening of Indian currency against the US dollar:
1. First and the foremost factor that boosts rupee is the outcome of the recent Reserve Bank of India’s board meeting which posted an end to over the rift between government and RBI over policy decisions. The Central bank, during the meeting, also agreed to constitute a panel to study the demand for sharing its central reserves.
2. A report by news agency Reuters stated that the Brent crude slipped by 6 per cent to the lowest since December 2017. Year to date, Crude oil is down 5.49 per cent which is a 26.8 per cent all from its 2018 peak of $86.29 per barrel seen on 3 Oct, the report added. The rupee had hit a record low during this time.
3. According to analysts, another big catalyst for India rupee is the ongoing state elections. The outcome of the polls will affect the market significantly. The results of as many as 5 state elections are scheduled to take place on December 11.
