Adani Group to raise Rs 5,000-6,000 cr via stake sale in subsidiaries
ICICI Direct's currency report on USDINR
The rupee reversed its losses and ended up almost 0 . 46 % vs . US $ as receding concerns over domestic state election political turmoil as well as steady US $ led to some profit booking in rupee shorts • The US $ ended the session with mild gains failing to derive supports from sharp gains in US 10 - year yields. Euro recovered from lows near 1 . 177 to end the session above its supports near 1.18. We expect some consolidation in euro and GBP amid absence of any major triggers. Upcoming US - North Korean leaders summit as well as FOMC policy meeting are major events.
Sovereign bonds were slightly higher yesterday. However, with crude oil prices in the vicinity of $ 80 / bl and sluggish demand for domestic debt, we can see yields rising to 8 % in the near tem • US 10 - year yields ended at 3.10 % , the highest levels since mid 2011 . We expect yields to continue to rise if crude oil prices see further gains.
