Rupee breaks one paise down at 82.41

The rupee was down by a paise at 82.41 against the US dollar in early trade on Tuesday amid a firming US currency and frequent outflow of foreign funds. Besides, weakness in domestic equity markets and risk aversion among investors also affected the rupee. In the interbank foreign exchange market, the rupee opened at 82.35 against the dollar, and then declined to 82.41. In this way, the rupee was trading with an increase of one paise against the previous closing price. The rupee on Monday lost 10 paise to close at an all-time low of 82.40 against the US dollar. Meanwhile, the dollar index, reflecting the US dollar’s position against the six major currencies, rose 0.12 per cent to 113.27.
