Strategy Outlook of the day

Currency Outlook of the Day - 7 August 2020

  • Yuan got spooked in early Asian trade as President Trump signed an executive order to bar US residents from doing business with TikTok, WeChat or Apps owners (Bytedance and Tencent) for 45 days. The move has dampened risk sentiment. Asian stocks are lower and Asian currencies weak. The US Dollar has bounced back against DM currencies as well. 
  • US jobless claims yesterday came in lower than expected at 1.2mn compared to previous print of 1.4mn. Continuing claims also fell to 16.1mn from 17mn.  US real rates however continue to grind lower with 10y real rates at -1.1% now. The S&P 500 is merely about 1.5% shy of its record closing high. Focus today will be on the US July NFP data (exp 1.5mn, previous 4.8m)

Chart of the Day - USDINR

null


The EURUSD pair tried to break 1.1910 resistance for the third time but failed to cross and then dumped to 1.1840. Rising trend line support for the EURUSD pair stands at 1.1800 level. If the EURUSD pair settles above 1.1900, we could see a quick rally toward the psychological 1.2000 threshold. Overall bias for the EURUSD pair remains bullish.

Client Testimonials

Mr. Vijay Agarwal

- Chairman, Creative Textile Mills Pvt Ltd, Mumbai

We have been associated with IFA Global for 4 years now. I can only tell that they have taken away a lot of my burden from foreign exchange. Previously, whenever I used to do; half of my time would go into analysing whether the market will go up or down. Now I am free, these guys are taking care of it very well. Transparent, Honest and Hard Working, can’t get better than this.

Mr. Vanjinath

- Managing Director, Cotton Concepts Pvt Ltd , Coimbatore

I have been associated with IFA Global for few years and have got great service so far. I am filled with a lot of information which helps me in the industry. The team has been professional and helped me in every single bit to understand how the market works. Especially when we deal with our own business, we do not understand the nuances of how the forex market works. The team has really broken down every single thing that is required when it comes to how the market performs or how we could utilise the benefits of forex in our business.

Right from bringing down my bank interest rates to negotiating with banks in terms of all conversions & rates; everywhere they have given me benefits in business. And, that is where I see them add value. I would recommend IFA Global for all their support.

Mr. Senthil Kumar

- Chairman, BKS Textiles Pvt Ltd, Coimbatore

Since the last few years, frankly speaking we have forgotten what we are supposed to do about our foreign currency transactions. We have left everything to IFA Global. We are comfortable and can devote our time to other things. We also feel by large we have made reasonable profits on FX transactions. Service wise, it has been a very good experience. Without asking, we have received the right advice at the right time so that we can remain in our business as competitive as we can. Happy with their services and would like to add & avail more services like Treasury Audit etc.
