Strategy Outlook of the day

Currency Outlook of the Day - 27 October 2020

  • Market participants continue to readjust their positions ahead of the US presidential elections. Risky bets are being taken off the table. Overall mood is that of caution. Markets are unnerved by the lack of progress on fiscal stimulus, rising Corona cases in Europe and the US along with the latest escalation in US-China tensions. China's plan to sanction Boeing Defense, Lockheed Martin over arms sales to China has also spooked investors. Turkish Lira depreciating past the 8 mark against the US Dollar has skewed sentiment against EM currencies. Typical risk-off moves was seen across asset classes. 
  • The US Dollar strengthened (particularly against the Yuan). Stocks sold off, US treasuries saw safe-haven bids, crude and base metals too sold off. Today is the October series Currency derivative expiry. We may see some selling at RBI fix on account of this. The Rupee weakened yesterday to 74.00 in exchange trading i.e. post OTC close. We may see some short USD/INR positioning get stopped out above 74. However, a one way move higher is not likely. Month-end exporter selling may cap upside in USDINR. For the day, we expect a range of 73.80-74.15. 

Seagull strategy for Importers (October 2020 expiry)

As per the current market scenario, we suggest importers to go for seagull strategy.

Buy Call 74.00 strike @50 paise 

Sell Put 73.00 strike @12 paise

Sell Call 75.00 strike @18 paise

Net premium to be paid: 20 paise

Chart of the Day - USDINR


USDINR pair opened above the falling trendline of 73.80 level today. Immediate resistance for the pair now stands 74.00 mark which is the daily supertrend level. On the flipside, the daily middle Bollinger band around 73.50 may continue to provide support for the near term.

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.


Mr. Shailesh  Shah
