    How does the US dollar trade against the Indian rupee historically?

    Over the last two decades, barring a few exceptions, the USD has continued to rise in value when compared to the INR. Post-liberalization in 1993 dropped the rupee further and left it trading at INR 42 to the USD. The USD to INR exchange rate hovered in between INR 42 and INR 49 from August 1998 to May 2007.

    The American subprime mortgage crisis resulted in the USD losing value against most currencies, and by October 2007 the value of the USD dropped to INR 39.36. The crisis was not isolated to the US, and affected other currencies as well. In March 2009, the USD valued at INR 51.13, a then historic high.

    Until mid 2011 the USD valued in between INR 44 and INR 50. It then began increasing in value quickly. It is during this time that investors became aware of investing in BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China), and in 2013 the US Federal Reserve announced its plan of reducing purchases of foreign bonds. While this never really happened, the announcement lead to investors withdrawing from emerging economies like India.

    By September 2013 the USD increased in value to INR 63.64. Between 2013 and mid 2014 the USD lost a little ground, mainly because of a new government in India and continuation of the US Federal stimulus program. The USD recovered and gained against all major currencies at the end of 2014, a first since the turn of the century. In recent times, value of the USD has hovered in between INR 64 and INR 66.

        Hi Ashvin,

        Thank you for leaving a question.

        It is hard to forecast how the exchange rate may be in the next days due to these factors:

        1. Inflation
        2. Interest Rate
        3. Public Debt
        4. Political Stability and Economic Performance
        5. Terms of Trade
        6. Currency account Deficit
        7. Recession
        8. Speculation

        These factors determine the exchange rate fluctuations. If you send or receive money frequently, being up-to-date on these factors will help you better evaluate the optimal time for international money transfer. Hope this helps!

        Cheers,
        Reggie
