The rupee is currently trading at 70.94 against the US$.

The domestic currency opened 18 paise higher at 70.96, its one-month high, amid positive global cues. The rupee on Thursday climbed 52 paise to end at 71.14 as signs of easing trade tensions between the US and China buoyed global markets.

In the previous six trading sessions, the Indian currency has appreciated by 125 paise.

Speaking of currencies, Vijay Bhambwani, editor of Weekly Cash Alerts, tells you the main reasons why not to trade commodities and currencies the same way you would trade equities. Here's an excerpt of what he wrote...

  • Currencies are traded in pairs and the most liquid is the USDINR. Currencies are traded in four decimal points just as bonds are. The international derivative trader's association has indicated that forex may be traded in 6 decimals in the coming few years.

    It takes months sometimes for the currency pair to pass the next round figure, say from 70 to 71.

    Can you really trade commodities and currencies alike or for that matter, equities and currencies alike? Definitely not!

To know more, you can read Vijay's entire article here: Is Trading in Equities, Commodities, and Currencies the Same?

In news from the banking sector, latest RBI data showed that the credit and deposits growth slowed to 10.2% and 9.7% to Rs 96.8 trillion and Rs 127.8 trillion respectively, in the fortnight to August 30.

In the year-ago fortnight, advances were at Rs 87.8 trillion while deposits stood at Rs 116.5 trillion.

The Double Income Project: Free Registration

In the previous fortnight to August 16, advances grew 11.6% to Rs 96.82 trillion and deposits by 10.2% to Rs 126.8 trillion.

In July, the non-food bank credit rose 11.4% on year-on-year basis from 10.6% in July 2018.

Credit to agriculture & allied activities rose 6.8% compared with an increase of 6.6% in the same month last year.

Loans to industry rose 6.1% in July from 0.3% a year ago. Meanwhile, personal loans rose 17% in July compared to an increase of 16.7% in July 2018.

Speaking of credit growth, co-head of Research at Equitymaster, Tanushree Banerjee believes retail and corporate credit are expected to grow by multi-fold over the next few years.

Rising Credit Growth in India

Here's what she wrote about it in one of the editions of The 5 Minute WrapUp...

  • One theme I strongly believe will play out over the next decade is the credit growth in India.

    The growth I foresee will be due to two reasons. Expanding GDP and credit penetration.

    Recent reforms like Jan Dhan, Mudra Yojna have helped Small and Medium Enterprises (SME's) and self-employed professionals to gain access to loans.

    Credit penetration is also expected to increase in this segment from current levels.

    Over the past few years, a lot of banks and NBFCs have started lending to this segment.

So look out for strong well-established financial services players which will benefit the most from this trend.
