As per RBI’s own calculations, almost every 5% depreciation in the rupee adds about 10-15 bps to the inflation. So given the fact that inflation is already very high and the RBI has been quite late to play catch up as far as raising interest rates to tackle inflation is concerned, going forward the outlook is not too good for the Indian rupee.

The upswing yesterday could take Nifty only as far as 16,400, the previous breakdown point, which de facto became a significant resistance. The rejection thereof would mean that we would start today just like yesterday, with a downside gapped opening followed by attempts to rise. Meanwhile,16,250 vicinity will take on the role donned by 16,400 yesterday, by keeping a lid on upsides, and 16,060 that of 16,250 by attempting to stage an upside reversal. The 15,800 region lies in wait, and so is a much larger 14,500 move, but our bets today are on 16,060 holding for an upswing towards 16,250 early in the day, with potential for extended upsides, while above 16,180.

The mother market US has turned distinctly weak with Nasdaq, S&P 500 and Dow at 1-year lows. European markets are moving in tandem with US markets. Relatively India is doing better thanks to the consistent buying by DIIs and retail investors. Retail investors should not rush in to buy aggressively now since the market is not at buyable valuations. Since there is a risk off environment globally, FIIs are likely to sell at every bounce in the market. High quality stocks like leading financials may be bought in small quantities.Rupee depreciation, which may continue, will impart resilience to IT stocks.
