Rupee strong by three paise
Due to the softening of the dollar and the rise in the domestic stock markets, the rupee was rising in the inter-banking currency market today. According to preliminary data, the rupee gained three paise to end at 74.99 per dollar. Traders said the rise in domestic stock markets and the dollar's softening in overseas markets supported the rupee. However, the withdrawal of foreign investors and an increase in cases of coronavirus infection negatively impacted the rupee. The rupee opened at 74.94 against the US dollar, but later lost its initial momentum and stood at 74.99 per dollar according to preliminary data.
