“Despite a truncated week, the forex market has been very volatile. The spot breached 73 on the back of uptrend in dollar. The market focus is on Biden’s additional stimulus announcement and an additional spending boost will further support the dollar rally. But the best thing to do for now is to follow the trend and let the market tell you where it’s going to end” said Rahul Gupta, Head Of Research- Currency, Emkay Global Financial Services.
