- USD/INR extends pullback from four-month-old resistance line amid sluggish markets.
- US Dollar pares gains around six-week high as Treasury bond yields retreat.
- China-linked headlines also weigh on prices amid cautious optimism in Asia.
USD/INR takes offers to refresh the intraday low near 82.65 while extending the previous day’s U-turn from the short-term key trend line resistance during early Thursday. In doing so, the Indian Rupee (INR) pair benefits from the mildly positive sentiment in Asia, as well as the US Dollar’s pullback from a six-week high marked on Wednesday.
Risk appetite improves in Asia, despite looming Fed concerns and mixed headlines from China, not to forget the US debt ceiling woes. The reason could be linked to a retreat in the US Treasury bond yields. Earlier in the day, China President Xi Jinping crossed wires while showing readiness to deepen industrial and investment cooperation with Asia. Following him were upbeat comments from Chinese Finance Minister Liu Kun who said that the 2023 fiscal revenue will grow this year, though the growth rate will not be too high, per the Chinese state media.
Elsewhere, fears of witnessing the US debt-ceiling crisis, as warned by the US Congressional Budget Office (CBO) on Wednesday per Reuters, suggested a faster solution to the big problem in the upcoming days and probed the US Treasury bond yields’ upside.
Amid these plays, the S&P 500 Futures print mild gains around 4,165 while extending the previous day’s gains whereas the US 10-year Treasury bond yields retreat following the run-up to a 1.5-month high marked on Wednesday, down two basis points to near 3.78% by the press time.
It’s worth noting that the recently firmer Oil prices and the US-data-backed hawkish expectations from the Federal Reserve (Fed) can probe the USD/INR bears ahead of the second-tier US data concerning the housing market, industrial activity and producer prices.
USD/INR portrays a clear U-turn from a downward-sloping resistance line from October 19, poking the 10-DMA support amid easing the bullish bias of the MACD by the press time.
With this, the Indian Rupee (INR) pair is likely declining toward a three-week-old ascending support line, close to 82.50 by the press time.
However, the USD/INR bears should remain worried unless witnessing a clear downside break of the 50-DMA support of 82.24.
Meanwhile, the USD/INR recovery needs validation from the four-month-old descending trend line, around the 83.00 round figure at the latest, to recall the pair buyers.
