Rupee seen edging higher as Asian cues offset bond index delay



By Nimesh Vora

MUMBAI, Oct 6 (Reuters) - The Indian rupee is expected to open marginally higher against the dollar on Thursday as gains in Asian currencies countered J.P. Morgan's decision to hold off the inclusion of Indian bonds into its global index.

The rupee INR=IN is tipped to open at 81.45-81.50, slightly up from 81.52 on Tuesday. Indian financial markets were shut on Wednesday.

After trading hours on Tuesday, J.P. Morgan said India will remain on its radar for inclusion in its influential emerging market debt index after its latest review, dashing hopes of inclusion of Asia's third largest economy in its index this year.

Investors had hoped the index provider would move towards including Indian bonds this year, following Russia's exit from the index. According to some estimates, the inclusion would have resulted in additional flows of as much as $30 billion.

USD/INR non-deliverable forwards (NDFs) rose immediately following J.P. Morgan's announcement, but the impact was muted by what were mostly positive cues for the rupee.

"There was not a big reaction on the NDFs to the bond news," a trader at a private sector bank said.

"A part of it is probably that expectations of inclusion were tempered down following recent reports and a part was the ongoing recovery in EM (emerging market) FX."

Asian currencies were trading higher as risk appetite was broadly positive. The offshore Chinese yuan rose above 7.0400 to the dollar after having fallen below 7.25 last week.

Asian shares and U.S. equity futures rose, while the dollar index dipped to just below 111.

Risk appetite has seen a bit of revival, dampening demand for the dollar. Still, the greenback is likely to be supported from the U.S. Federal Reserve's rate forecast and concerns over the global economic outlook.

Meanwhile, oil prices gained for a fourth day after deep production cuts pledged by OPEC+ members.
