Weekly Currency News

Market Outlook

On Friday, the Indian Rupee appreciated by 14 paise to open at 70.8025 and throughout the week hovered in the range of 70.0050 and 71.3050 against the US dollar on account of dollar’s weakness against other currencies overseas and a strong domestic equity market. Moreover, easing in crude oil prices, sustained foreign fund inflows and increased selling of American currency by exporters and banks bolstered the rupee sentiments. On the flip side, dollar was flat following reports that the Federal Reserve is considering adopting a wait-and-see approach to rate hikes.
