Rupee opens lower on aggressive Fed policy tightening expectations

The Indian rupee opened lower against the dollar on Monday, tracking broad decline in Asian peers after upbeat US jobs data prompted traders to bet on an aggressive 75-basis-point rate hike from the Federal Reserve in its September meeting. The rupee was trading at 79.46 per US dollar by 0333 GMT, compared with the previous close of 79.23.

Market View: Dr. VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

A paradox in the economy-market connection is that good news on the economy can turn out to be bad news for markets. This is playing out now. The July US jobs data came in at a robust 580000 against the poll of 250000. This indicates a strong economy nowhere near recession. This means the Fed might hike rates by another 75 bp in September to cool the economy to contain inflation. Therefore, there can be a near-term strengthening of the dollar. It remains to be seen how FIIs will react to this.

Growth impulses in India are strong. Leading indicators like bank credit growth, capacity utilization in manufacturing, automobile demand etc suggest an economy in strong rebound.
Financials, capital goods and construction are on a strong wicket. Pharma and FMCG are stable. Robust jobs data in the US bodes well for the IT sector.
