11 © Bank of Mauritius Exchange Rate Outlook International Relatively weak fundamentals, deflationary risk (or persistently low inflation) in the Eurozone, unattractive interest rate differentials and the ECB’s deeper monetary stimulus will weigh on the Euro and support the US dollar. Strong economic numbers and higher inflation prints in the US are enough to keep the Fed on its tapering path and move towards higher interest rates in This further support the greenback. However, the US trade deficit deteriorated sharply, rising to its highest level in two years. The domestic environment is encouraging in the UK and the BoE is expected to be the first of the G4 to hike interest rates; this has supported the GBP. However, the BoE has forecasted in May that economic growth could start to slow in the second half this year which could potentially reduce the chance of an interest rate hike this year, causing the GBP to become vulnerable. Domestic The evolution of the rupee exchange rate is expected to be conditioned by developments in major currency markets as well as by domestic demand and supply factors. 11

34 © Bank of Mauritius Stock Market Outlook International Global stocks markets are holding near record highs on signs of an improving global economy and continued central bank support. Global equities are expected to extend their rally into the second half of the year mostly on the continued recovery and the ECB’s recent stimulus measures amid the low interest rates environment. However, global tensions and reduced stimulus from the Federal Reserve might keep stock market gains modest; further signs of an economic slowdown in China and future interest rate hikes in major economies could lead to risk aversion and affect equity markets. Domestic The local stock market is expected to remain supported in tandem with global equities although profit-taking and any potential retreat by foreign investors may somewhat limit its gains. 34
