Rupee inches 2 paise higher to 77.59 against US dollar
The rupee inched 2 paise higher to close at 77.59 (provisional) against US dollar on Friday, supported by positive domestic equities and weakness of the American currency overseas. Forex traders said the rupee consolidated in a narrow range as elevated crude oil prices, fiscal deficit concerns and persistent FII outflows weighed on the local unit. At the interbank forex market, the rupee opened at 77.60 against the greenback and moved in a range of 77.57 to 77.67 in the day’s trade.

The bulls continued the momentum in the Bank Nifty index and ended near the day’s high. The index remains in a buy mode as long as it stays above the level of 34,800. The upside levels of 36,200-36,500 are likely to be hit in the near term. The momentum oscillators are in the buying territory confirming the internal strength.
Joining the global rally, the investors were in a buying mood following favourable retail earnings in the US. Receding FII selling also provided comfort to the domestic market in bringing down volatility. The RBI’s upcoming policy meeting will be a key factor in the market, where they are expected to announce an additional policy rate hike of 25-35bps.
