"Earlier in the day, there was strong selling of dollars by foreign banks, which pushed up the rupee to 46.03. However at that level, oil companies were seen buying dollars, extensively, said a dealer at a private bank.

Euro and pound weakened against the dollar and this impacted the rupee, he said. Dealers said that the rupee is expected to reach 46 in the coming days. In forwards, the six-month premium ended at 1.27 per cent (1.26 per cent) and the 12-month at 1.3 per cent (1.28 per cent).
