The stealth currency collapse in January 2020

You will never see this on any Business channel in India, but...

There has been a spectacular collapse in most major currencies against the US dollar just last month.

*-Against USD till Feb 18, 2020

Given that the INR is a highly overvalued currency, can anybody say with certainty, that the INR won't depreciate, and severely at that?

And a history of the INR shows that depreciation tends to be in violent moves, rather than orderly changes

Take a look at this table.

Brazilian Real

-8.46%

S. African Rand

-7.21%

Thai Baht

-5.08%

Australian Dollar

-4.29%

EURO

-3.57%

Russian Ruble

-3.07%

Singapore Dollar

-2.96%

South Korean won

-2.91%

Canadian Dollar

-2.60%

GB Pound

-2.26%

Mexican PESO

-1.80%

Japanese YEN

-1.09%

The net result is this: in US dollar terms, the Indian stock market has delivered abysmal returns over the past several years.

Around 2% CAGR over 5-6 years

Around 0% over 10 years

Now that is quite a shocker, isn't it?
