    Corrected: Fitch sees Indian rupee weakening to 75 against dollar by end-2019

    Fitch Ratings said on Thursday it expects the Indian currency to weaken to 75 rupees against the U.S. dollar by the end of next year on a widening current account deficit and tighter global financing conditions. Despite a few recent advances, the rupee is on track for its worst yearly performance in five years in 2018 and a Reuters poll on Wednesday had forecast it to weaken further as uncertainty builds, heading into national elections due by May.

    More trouble ahead for bruised rupee: Reuters poll

    The rupee will weaken over the six next months as uncertainty builds heading into national elections due in May, a Reuters poll showed. While a sharp drop in oil prices should help the slowing economy and the rupee, concerns will also persist over sluggish domestic demand which weighed more heavily on July-September growth than expected. Most major Asian currencies have had a bruising year amid a strong U.S. dollar, though many have made some gains this week after the United States and China agreed at the weekend to a 90-day truce in their trade war.

    Sri Lankan rupee hits fresh low against dollar for 6th day running

    The Sri Lankan rupee hit yet another record low against the dollar on Wednesday on continuing concerns about political uncertainty dragging down the island-nation's economy, after a credit rating downgrade by Moody's and the IMF halting a loan discussion last week. Moody's downgraded Sri Lanka last week for the first time since it started rating the country in 2010, blaming the political crisis for aggravating already problematic finances. The downgrade coincided with a decision by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to delay discussions about its loan tranche to Sri Lanka.

    Rupee, bonds rise after RBI board meeting

    Indian rupee and bonds rose in early trade on Tuesday after the outcome from a central bank board meeting late Monday removed uncertainty over a growing rift over policy decisions between the government and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). The RBI's announcement to buy bonds via open market operation to ease tight cash conditions added to the upbeat mood, traders said. The Indian rupee rose to as much as 71.36 to the dollar, its highest since Sept. 4 from its previous close of 71.65 while the benchmark 10-year bond yield fell to 7.76 percent from Monday's close of 7.79 percent.

    Rice prices in top-exporter India nudged higher this week as the rupee firmed, while Thai exporters eyed fresh demand from the Philippines amid expectations of an increase in seasonal supply. India's 5 percent broken parboiled variety was quoted around $363-$371 per tonne this week, versus $362-$369 last week. India's rice exports dropped 9.6 percent to 5.8 million tonnes between April and September from a year earlier, as leading buyer Bangladesh trimmed purchases due to a bumper local harvest, a government body said earlier this week.

    A tough road ahead for India's battered rupee: Reuters poll

    There will be little respite for the bruised Indian rupee over the coming year, depressed by an escalating U.S.-China trade war and rising domestic political risks ahead of a general election, a Reuters poll showed. Investors have generally shunned emerging market assets this year, made riskier by the international trade tensions and the increasing attractiveness of dollar yields thanks to the U.S. Federal Reserve's steady pace of rate increases. "The Indian rupee reflects emerging market concerns and is facing significant depreciation pressure," noted Tuuli McCully, head of Asia-Pacific economics at Scotiabank.

    India's April-September fiscal deficit at 5.95 trillion rupees

    Rising oil prices have been a major drag on India's import bill in 2018, leading credit rating agencies to question whether the country can meet its fiscal deficit target of 3.3 percent of GDP in the 2018/19 fiscal year. Global crude prices have fallen by around 11 percent in the last three weeks, easing pressure on the Prime Minister Narendra government, as his Bharatiya Janata Party girds for a series of state elections in coming months and a national election due by May. The government said last month that it was confident of meeting its fiscal deficit target of 3.3 percent of gross domestic product for the fiscal year ending in March 2019.
