The rupee today made sharp gains of over a rupee at 55.67 against the dollar on stronger equity markets and steep rise in the Euro.

The domestic currency oscillated from an intra-day low of 56.66 to end at a day’s high (55.67) from a close of 56.80 on Thursday. It opened 19 paise higher at 56.61 on the Interbank Foreign Exchange market.

“High dollar selling from the foreign banks, steep rise in euro on positive moves from the EU summit and oil importers staying off the markets led the rupee gains,” said a chief dealer of a nationalised bank.

Further, the NDF (Non-Deliverable Forwards) were at a discount as compared to the local markets leading to increase in dollar selling, the deader added.
