In the early hours of Tuesday, the Indian rupee showed signs of strength, appreciating by 5 paise against the US dollar. This positive trend was supported by the performance of domestic equities.

The domestic currency opened at 83.24 against the dollar and reached an early high of 83.22, marking a gain of 5 paise compared to its previous close.

Dollar Index and Forex Market Dynamics

The dollar index, which measures the strength of the US dollar against a basket of six currencies, was trading slightly higher, with a 0.06% increase, at 106.30.

On the preceding day, the rupee had closed at 83.27 against the US dollar. Forex traders observed that the rupee has been trading in a narrow range, influenced by sustained foreign fund outflows and the strength of the American currency in international markets.

According to Gaurang Somaiya, a forex and bullion analyst at Motilal Oswal Financial, while no significant domestic economic data is expected to be released this week, global factors, such as speeches by Fed members and key US economic data, could influence the dollar’s movement. Somaiya anticipated that the USDINR (Spot) would maintain a sideways trading pattern within the range of 83.05 to 83.50.
