Rupee falls for second day, settles 8 paise down at 72.97 against U.S. dollar

The rupee declined by 8 paise to end at 72.97 against the U.S. currency on June 9 in its second straight day of losses amid a lacklustre trend in domestic equities.

At the interbank foreign exchange market, the rupee opened on a negative note at 72.90 per dollar as against its previous close of 72.89. It hovered in the range of 72.88 to 73.02 per dollar during the day before ending at 72.97.

The domestic currency has lost 17 paise in the two trading sessions to June 9.

The local unit traded in a narrow range amid lack of any major data on June 9 in the domestic and the international markets, traders said.

Meanwhile, the dollar index, which gauges the greenback’s strength against a basket of six currencies, fell 0.09% to 89.99.

“The USDINR spot is hovering around 73 zone, whether it will bounce or not depends on U.S. CPI. The Forex traders await some guidance from Thursday’s CPI data and ECB policy,” said Rahul Gupta, Head Of Research- Currency, Emkay Global Financial Services.

Mr. Gupta further noted that “an upbeat CPI data won’t provide an excuse for the Fed to defer the tapering debate a little longer but all will be revealed at the June 16th FOMC meeting. Until then in USDINR spot, 73.25-73.30 is a crucial resistance, a consistent above that can push prices towards 73.60-73.75 zone while 72.75-72.50 will act as a crucial support.” On the domestic equity market front, the BSE Sensex ended 333.93 points, or 0.64% lower at 51,941.64, while the broader NSE Nifty fell 104.75 points or 0.67% to close at 15,635.35.

Brent crude futures, the global oil benchmark, rose 0.35% to $72.47 per barrel.

Foreign institutional investors were net buyers in the capital market on Tuesday as they purchased shares worth ₹1,422.71 crore, as per exchange data.
