Rupee turns weaker against dollar, down 6 paise

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

The rupee saw a marginal drop of 6 paise to 64.11 against the in opening session today in the midst of fresh demand for the American unit.

However, what limited the rupee's fall was the sliding in the global market and a spectacular opening in domestic equities, traders said.

Yesterday, re-asserting its dominance against the dollar, the rupee shot up 26 paise to end at a fresh 21-month high of 64.05, driven by robust macro data, even as exporters aggressively offloaded the American currency.

The benchmark was trading at a fresh intra-day life high of 30,424.23 by surging 102.21 points, or 0.33 per cent, in opening trade today.
