Moving in line with the equity market, the rupee advanced by another 10 paise to 44.62 per US dollar in the early trade today on persistent selling of the American currency by banks and corporates on the back of fresh capital inflows from foreign funds.

At the Interbank Foreign Exchange, the rupee resumed higher at 44.65/66 per dollar against the previous closing level of 44.72/73 per dollar and moved up further to 44.62.

At 10.30 a.m., the rupee was quoting at 44.68/69 per dollar. It moved in a range between 44.62 and 44.71 in the morning deals.

Resumption of capital inflows into the equity market from FIIs mainly boosted the rupee value against the dollar, a forex dealer said.

Meanwhile, the euro edged off a three-week low today in the Tokyo market, helped by tentative signs of stability in commodity markets, though the currency remained under pressure over worries about indebted countries in the euro bloc.

A letter from the Editor


Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance.
