Strategy Outlook of the day

Currency Outlook of the Day -12 December 2019

  • The US Fed left the overnight Federal funds rate unchanged as expected. The decision by the FOMC was unanimous. The median dot plot indicates rates remaining at current levels through 2020. Growth and Inflation projections continue to remain unchanged. Unemployment rate is projected lower. Chair Powell in his speech said the Fed would hike only if inflation is "significantly and persistently" higher. This statement has come across as dovish to the markets. The US Dollar has weakened across the board. Far end of the US yield is down a couple of basis points. US equities ended the session flat. Likely range 70.50-70.90 with sideways price action.
  • President Trump is likely to have a meeting with his trade advisers today to decide whether to go ahead with 15th December tariffs (Important to keep an eye on President's Twitter account for any developments on this front!)

Option Analytics - 6 November 2019

As per current market scenario, we suggest importers to go for Seagull Option strategy (December 2019 Expiry).

Below are the different scenarios for the given strategy. 

Case I:  If the USD INR pair expires below or at 70.00 on maturity, then the importer’s rate would be hedged at 70.29 which is far better than the current forward rate (71.29).

Case II:  If the USD INR pair expires between 70.00 – 71.00 on maturity, then the importer’s rate would be hedged at Spot + 29 Paisa. For eg: If the USDINR pair expires at 70.50 then net realization rate would be (70.50 + 0.29) = 70.79. 

Case III: If the USD INR pair expires between 71.00 - 72.00 on maturity, then the importer’s rate would be hedged at 71.29 which is equivalent to current forward rate (71.29)

Case IV: If the USD INR pair expires above 72.00 on maturity, then the importer’s rate would be hedged at spot – 0.71. For eg: If the USDINR pair expires at 73.00 then net realization rate would be (73.00 – 0.71) = 72.29.

Chart of the Day - USDINR


USDINR pair has been trading around 71.00 mark from last few trading sessions. The pair needs to break on either side of the consolidation range of 70.60 - 71.30 for further direction. Sideways price action is expected today in anticipation of low trading volumes.

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

- Executive Director, Sonic Biochem Extractions Ltd, Indore

We have been associated with IFA Global for more than 5 years. We are exporters and happy to inform that every morning we talk on business and we are able to make good decisions on Forex. We have good relationship with the firm and the people of the firm. Able to discuss and share our business as well as personal issues. People in the firm are excellent at large.
