The Indian rupee exhibited a marginal appreciation of 1 paise against the US dollar, trading at 83.25 in the early session. This minor rise comes amidst a subdued performance in domestic stocks.

Narrow Trading Range for Rupee

The local currency opened flat at 83.26 against the US dollar. This stability within a narrow range can be attributed to sustained foreign fund outflows and the robustness of the American currency in the global market, which have impacted investor sentiments.

Dollar Index and Rupee Trends

The dollar index, measuring the strength of the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, showed a slight uptick, trading 0.04% higher at 106.60. This development influenced the rupee’s performance to some extent.

Reasons for Rupee Stability

Currency traders mentioned that the rupee is trading within a limited range due to consistent foreign fund outflows and the US dollar’s strength in the international market. Foreign Portfolio Investors (FPIs) have continued selling stocks, while oil companies, faced with a sharp increase in oil prices, have been acquiring US dollars, keeping the rupee within a specific range. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has also intervened by selling dollars.
