Rupee Slips 23 Paise To 72.92 Against US Dollar In Early Trade

The dollar index advanced 0.17 per cent to 90.66.

The rupee depreciated 23 paise to 72.92 against the US dollar in opening trade on Wednesday amid a muted trend in the domestic equity market and strengthening American currency.

At the interbank forex market, the domestic currency opened at 72.90 against the US dollar, then lost further ground and touched 72.92 — registering a fall of 23 paise over its previous close.

On Tuesday, the rupee had settled at 72.69 against the American currency.

The dollar index, which gauges the greenback’s strength against a basket of six currencies, advanced 0.17 per cent to 90.66.

“FPI flows into the domestic markets could cap the depreciation bias of the local unit,” Reliance Securities said in a research note. Meanwhile, Asian currencies are weak this morning and could weigh on sentiments, the note added.

Brent crude futures, the global oil benchmark, advanced 0.17 per cent to $63.46 per barrel.

The domestic currency is likely to strengthen 1.3 per cent and average 73.5 against the US dollar in the financial year 2022-23 compared with an average level of 74.4 in the financial year 2021-22.
