The Indian rupee is set to appreciate to 61.1 against the dollar by March, according to an econometric model developed by BI. Political and economic stability and reform momentum of the Modi government are attracting strong capital inflows, buoying the rupee. Seasonal patterns in the trade balance — now a source of some resistance — soon will also turn in the currency's favor. As capital flows and trade seasonality align in 2H, the rupee is likely to post sharper gains.
This is from Bloomberg Intelligence. Here's our take on this morning's macro news and what's ahead. The Ifo Institute’s gauge shows that Germany’s business surveys continue to send mixed signals. But taking the balance of evidence from the surveys and the path of industrial output in the first half of the year, the data from Germany are consistent with BI's forecast for growth to slow to 0.5% in 3Q.
Having dragged on growth in 1Q, net trade contributed nothing in 2Q. The data can also be choppy from one quarter to the next as large import and export orders land, but at the current juncture the large drop in sterling has been far from a boon for the external sector. GDP has grown cumulatively by 1.7% over the past year in the face of a 0.5 ppt drag from net trade.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
