The Rupee Does Way Better Than Big Emerging Market Currencies in 2015

The Indian Rupee is the best performing currency in the BRIC. Even the Indonesian Rupiah has devalued substantially.



Much of this is because the USDINR was at 63.8 at the end of last year, but it’s still remarkable to see that the USD has appreciated 22% against the Brazilian Lira, and more than 5% against the Russian Ruble and Indonesian Rupiah in 2015.

    (Jittery) Rajan meets FM ahead of FED meeting. Told media India fully prepared for volatality since we have comfortable Forex Reserves. But can the Reserve can defend against attack of speculators of Rupee (remember June-Aug. 2013). Even China with vast Reserves admitted it cannot withstand attacks since most of the Hot Money which came into China had been locked up in Long term Investments like illiquid Real Estates and State Enterprises Projects.
    India will be no diffferent.
