“Indian rupee depreciated for the third day in a row following dollar demands from importers ahead of the month and financial year-end and rebound in crude oil prices,” said Dilip Parmar, Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

 

Parmar further added that global financial markets have been searching for clear direction on the back of ongoing geopolitical uncertainties. The US Fed’s hawkish bet has been supporting gain in the dollar.

 

The dollar index, which gauges the greenback’s strength against a basket of six currencies, was trading 0.14 per cent higher at 98.63.
