The USDINR price ranges is trapped between resistance high 75.000 and the support zones of 74.846 at the time of the report.
For the new week to come, we may see a bounce to the upside if the news from the U.S. economy will be favorable to the currency.
A close below 74.846 will likely give the Indian rupee strength against the U.S. dollar by pushing down the price to the low of 72.066.

Daily Support Levels: 71.857, 73.450, 74.360
Looking at the daily chart time frame, you can see that the USDINR pair form a descending triangle chart pattern. If the bear’s rally sustained over time, we might see the bearish trend close below the support levels of 73.450 and 74.360 to expose the lower low of 71.857.
However, if the bulls can control the support levels and are ready to break out above the 75.100 resistance zone, we may see the price rise to 76.330.

On the Hour 4 time frame, we can see that the highs are getting lower while the lows are also getting higher; this is a symmetrical triangle chart pattern that has formed.
There shall be a breakout to either side of the triangle; therefore, the online brokers can wait for a confirmed breakout and a directional bias.
If we get a breakout to the upside, we expect the bulls to ride the trend. If we get a break out to the downside, we hope the bears have the direction.
From the four hours’ time frame, we can only wait to confirm the trend before we can ascertain the direction bias. However, on the daily chart time frame, we can see that the support zones have been holding.
A bullish scenario may happen based on the daily time frame should the support zone of 74.360 be respected, and the bulls can rally the price higher.
From the weekly and daily chart time frames, we can see that the Indian rupee has been strong against the USA currency since the U.S. economy has not been stable for some time.
We expected the weekly chart to continue their downward movements if the price can close lower than the 74.846 levels for a continuation of the trend.
Conclusion and Projection
The Indian rupee has not been strong in itself due to the COVID-19 pandemic effects of the economy and the recovery process that is slow for some countries and challenging for the most growing economy.
