USDINR Technical Analysis
Monthly Chart Projection: Bullish Correcting
Monthly Resistance Levels: 77.45, 74.65
Monthly Support Levels: 72.65
The recent worries about possible outdated information included in the AstraZeneca Plc AZN vaccine developed with Oxford University could affect the time and pace of recovery from the pandemic, as the U.S. health agency calls for caution. This news can cause online brokers and investors to be skeptical about the state of the currency.
However, the USDNIR pair has been bearish since the coronavirus pandemic began in March 2020. The Bearish rally may likely reach the support level of 68.3075 if it can close below the 72.65 zones.
Weekly Resistance Levels: 75.478, 77.401, 74.459
Weekly Support Levels: 72.066, 72.658, 70.346
The weekly trend line has been respected by price; anytime it touches the trendline, there is a rejection of the price, indicating a strong bearish trend. A breakout above the line would mean a possible reversal of the downtrend for an uptrend.
A regular bullish divergence is building on the stochastic indicator shown on the weekly timeframe. If the support level of 72.658 can hold to reject the bear’s run, we may see the price rise towards the 77.401 resistance zone.
If the bears’ rally is strong, it can close below the 72.658 level for another swing to the support level of 70.346.
Daily Projections: Bearish-consolidating
Daily Resistance Levels: 74.216, 75.087, 73.802, 72.59
Daily Support Levels: 72.2870
The daily candles show the bearish momentum in the market as they are bigger and longer than the bullish candles, which are smaller.
A close below the support zone of 72.2870 will take the USD vs. Indian Rupee lower, but a bounce from the area with a close above the 72.59 resistance zone will take the price higher to the high of 73.802 resistance level.
A bullish scenario buildup on the weekly time frame is not yet confirmed, but it could be a potential move if the support level of 72.658 should reject the bearish rally for a reversal.
The trend of USDNIR has been bearish for a while. We expect the trend to continue on the daily timeframe if we can get a close below the 72.28 support zone for the price to drop lower.
Conclusion and Projection
Most of the emerging market currencies will likely continue their gains against the weakened U.S. dollar as they hope for a higher yield in anticipation of a successful coronavirus vaccine distribution to help drive growth.
Online broker hopes that the administration of Joe Biden will end the war of tariff in the international trade matched with vaccine deployment.
The bearish momentum has not reduced as the price faces a possible bounce from the support level on the daily time frame; we may see a trend reversal in the coming days if the bear’s move should fail.
