Re loses 6ps to settle at 83.39/$

Mumbai: The rupee depreciated 6paise to settle at 83.39 against the US dollar on Thursday due to a strengthening greenback against major rivals overseas and rising crude oil prices in the international markets. However, a firm trend in domestic equity markets and recent foreign fund inflows supported the domestic currency, forex traders said. At the interbank foreign exchange market, the local unit opened at 83.32 and oscillated between the intra-day peak of 83.30 and the lowest level of 83.40 against the greenback. The local unit finally settled at 83.39, registering a loss of 6paise from its previous close.

On Wednesday, the rupee declined 4paise to close at 83.33 against the US dollar. Meanwhile, the dollar index, which gauges the greenback’s strength against a basket of six currencies, was trading 0.34 per cent higher at 104.42. Anuj Choudhary, Research Analyst, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas, said the Indian rupee depreciated on Thursday on strong US dollar and dollar demand from oil marketing companies (OMCs). Weak Asian currencies and a rise in crude oil prices also weighed on the rupee.
