Today, the rupee made a huge recovery after a significant jump. Despite the fact that there is still substantial inflation, this is a major success. This fiscal year, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has raised the repo rate by 140 basis points.
the reasons the rupee grew
The pressure on the dollar has decreased, according to Jatin Trivedi, VP Research Analyst at LKP Securities, in light of this evening’s release of US inflation statistics. 8.1 percent is the new projection for US inflation, which was previously predicted to stay at 8.5 percent.
These numbers are causing the dollar to decline. The Fed will feel less pressure if inflation declines. Additionally, this will reduce the demand for dollars. Earlier, it was predicted that the Fed will raise interest rates by 0.75 basis points, but if inflation falls, the rise will only be 0.50 or 0.25 bps.
