Rupee’s Movement and Forex Reserves

The Indian rupee weakened by 20 paise to close at 83.14 against the US dollar on Monday. This depreciation was attributed to rising crude oil prices and the strength of the US dollar against major global currencies. The rupee began trading at 83.04 and fluctuated between a high of 83.04 and a low of 83.15 against the US dollar.

Additionally, India’s foreign exchange reserves decreased by $867 million to reach $593.037 billion in the week ended September 15, as reported by the Reserve Bank of India on Friday.

The uncertain global economic environment continues to influence Indian markets, with investors closely monitoring international developments and their potential impact on the domestic economy.
