© Provided by Free Press Journal Rupee hits all-time low of 78.32 against US dollar

The rupee on Thursday closed at its all-time low of 78.32 (provisional) against the US dollar as strong American currency and persistent foreign fund outflows weighed on investor sentiments.

At the interbank foreign exchange market, the local currency opened at 78.26 and finally settled at its all-time low 78.32, unchanged from its previous close.

On Wednesday, the rupee declined by 19 paise to settle at an all-time low level of 78.32 against the US dollar.

The Indian rupee erased early morning gains as safe-haven demand drove the greenback ahead of quarter-end adjustments, said Dilip Parmar, Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

Parmar further said that there is a high chance of a near bounce amid a fall in commodities, strength in regional currencies and recovery in risk assets.

“Spot USDINR is expected to be in the narrow range of 78.10 to 78.50 before heading towards 79 odd levels,” Parmar said.

The dollar index, which gauges the greenback’s strength against a basket of six currencies, rose 0.41 per cent to 104.62.

Jateen Trivedi, VP Research Analyst at LKP Securities said, “Rupee traded in a range between 78.20-78.40 ended near 78.30 as the dollar traded neutral along with capital market range bound volatile day kept range-bound moves. Rupee weakness can continue till the time Crude stays above $95, any breach below $95 and lower level sustained on Crude shall provide strong support to the rupee. Rupee range can be seen between 77.75-78.50 price can show volatile movements between the said range”

Brent crude futures, the global oil benchmark, declined 0.99 per cent to USD 110.63 per barrel.

On the domestic equity market front, the BSE Sensex ended 443.19 points or 0.86 per cent higher at 52,265.72, while the broader NSE Nifty gained 143.35 points or 0.93 per cent to 15,556.65.
