When is the best time to buy?
The best time to buy INR depends on sociopolitical atmosphere, interest and inflation rates, foreign trade, public debt, and export to import price ratios.
The Indian economy is slowly growing, with developments in the technology sector earning the INR more value. However, the ongoing trade war between China and the US could hurt India, who trades a lot with China.
How does GBP trade against INR historically?
From 2002 through to 2008, the value of the pound fluctuated between roughly 75 and 85 rupees. During the financial crisis, the pound dropped quickly against the rupee, falling from an exchange rate of 83.94 on October 2008 to 67.56 by January 2009.
As the UK saw slow growth after the crisis, its exchange rate dropped to 65 rupees in 2010 and held steady for about a year. However the second half of 2011 and into 2012, the value of the pound began to rise against most major currencies, including the rupee.
During the same time, a US Federal Reserve Board policy prompted investors around the world to abandon emerging and risky markets, such as India, for more stable markets such as the US and UK. The value of the pound skyrocketed to more than 100 rupees in August 2013, and it consistently traded from roughly 95 to 105 rupees in the following two years.
