As China over-controls the value of the Chinese Yuan, the Indian policy makers are slowly introducing the Indian Rupee to an openly traded currency. The India Rupee is already (almost) freely traded in Dubai. Plans for the Rupee to truly trade freely in New York and London are in the works.

Combine the Indian Rupee advantages, than consider that the Indian economy is actually well better positioned than that of the chinese and you will see the advantages of investing in both the SENSEX and the Rupee.

China continues to do the manufacturing for the world, while an educated work force in India are taking the route of higher paid technology jobs. Most high-tech outsourcing continues to move to India and the Rupee.

India's annual industrial output rose more than expected in July, driven by capital goods production, which analysts said signalled continuing investment and underlying economic strength in the face of higher interest rates.

Friday's data showed industrial production rose 7.1 percent in July from a year earlier, beating a forecast of 6.5 percent in a Reuters poll and faster than 5.4 percent in June.

Industrial output is geared mostly to the domestic market, accounting for about a fifth of GDP, and economists were divided on whether it was strong enough to prompt another tightening by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) at a rate review in October.

"Given the recent trend as far as manufacturing prices inflation is concerned there is still scope for RBI to go with that one last hike in October," said Rajeev Malik, head of Indian and ASEAN economics at Macquarie Capital Securities.

The yield on the 10-year benchmark bond fell 2 basis points to 8.25 percent after the data, with the market looking past the data to an auction later in day, while the rupee inched up to 45.7150/7250 per dollar and the main stock index trimmed losses.

The central bank raised interest rates three times in June and July as inflation moved into double digits, taking its main lending rate, the repo rate, to a seven-year high of 9.0 percent.

Annual inflation has moderated from a peak of 12.6 percent in early August to just above 12 percent by the end of that month, and some economists say the central bank may not hike rates again.

"The headwinds to growth have risen and we expect average IIP growth of 6.7 percent in fiscal 2008/09. We do not expect any more repo rate hikes by the Reserve Bank of India," said Sonal Varma, economist at Lehman Brothers.

The Indian Rupee will continue it's long term rise. The Indian economy will be more to content with for the US Dollar than the Chinese Yuan.

news the U.S. government is set to design a broad plan to deal


with the toxic bank assets clogging the financial systems.

 Asian stocks rallied and Wall Street had its best day in

      All the above information about growth of rupee vs us dollars are bogus. India is looking for foreign investment direct or indirect to show the strength of rupee against dollar. While in local market the high rate of inflation of Indian rupee seems to be bogus d valuating currency to the actual users in India. All analysis are show business basically for Indian actual users of rupee.This is the best tricks of our Government to show the economic strength thus gained.

      With the currency market being very unpredictable, reading this article has been a very interesting read. It would be intriguing to see whether one could accurately predict future trends simply by looking at graphs and statistics.

      Though i suppose if that were possible, there would be traders in the profession then in any other...

      A very well written article.

      If dollar falls below Rs.35 it's best for India as overall India doesn't depend on exports only and imports are more than exports so it will be better to have affordability in India like usa has now - less cost of living will only be possible then.

      It will be a disaster mainly in export segment if USD goes below Rs. 40-42. We should maintain that level to make india Grow in all sectors.

      i believe that Chinese Yuan will be more valuable against US Dollar because in 2025 India will be the 2nd largest economy in the world and obiviously China is the 1st. And China is growing more faster than India.

      I am also of the same belief. Only pretty more optimistic. I assume US $ @ Rs. 15 by 2012.

      I have also written some hubs about financial problems of America which have matching views.

      Thumbs up!
