Rupee-Yen correlation weakens

The Oct-05 to Jan-06 period saw very close correlation between Dollar-Rupee and Dollar-Yen. They continued to move more or less in tandem between Jan-Apr-06. The directional correlation continued in the May-Jul-06 period. USDINR gained 4.5% (from 44.98 to 47.02) while USDJPY gained about 6-7%, from 109.75 to 117.25 in this period. But, the correlation has weakened in the last 3 months. USDINR has fallen from 47.02 to 45.75 today, whereas USDJPY fell from 117.15 to 114.40 and then rose to 118.38. Is the Rupee dancing to a different tune than the Yen? Needs watching!
