Rupee Hits Over Two-Month Low Amid Geopolitical Tensions

The Indian rupee fell by 17 paise, closing at a two-month low of 83.61 against the US dollar on Thursday. This decline occurred despite the surge in domestic equity markets, driven by increasing crude oil prices due to renewed geopolitical tensions in the Middle East. The firm American currency against major rivals further pressured the rupee.

Even though there was an influx of foreign capital and a positive momentum in the domestic equity markets, these factors were insufficient to bolster the rupee. At the interbank foreign exchange market, the rupee opened at 83.43 and briefly hit an intra-day high of 83.42 before plunging to an all-time low of 83.68 during the session. The currency ultimately settled at 83.61, marking a significant drop from its previous close.

On the previous day, the rupee had settled just 1 paisa lower at 83.44 against the dollar. This recent depreciation reflects the broader impact of a strong US dollar and mixed performance in Asian markets. The rupee’s current level is comparable to its previous low on April 16 this year, where it also closed at 83.61 against the dollar.

Contributing to the rupee’s decline, the dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a basket of six currencies, increased by 0.21% to 105.10. Additionally, Brent crude futures, the global oil benchmark, rose by 0.18% to $85.22 per barrel, adding further pressure on the rupee.

The recent decline of the rupee highlights the complex interplay of global geopolitical tensions, oil prices, and currency market dynamics. Investors and market participants should stay vigilant, as these factors continue to influence the rupee’s performance in the near term.
