Dollar/INR
The Indian Rupee appreciated by 0.3 percent in yesterday’s trading session. The currency appreciated on the back of selling of dollars from exporters and some custodian banks. Additionally, upbeat global market sentiments coupled with weakness in the DX in the early part of the trade also supported an upside in the currency. However, sharp upside in the currency was capped as result of dollar demand from importers and oil refiners. The Indian Rupee touched an intra-day high of 54.61 and closed at 54.80 against dollar on Wednesday. For the month of March 2013, FII inflows totaled at Rs.65.80 crores th ($8.57 million) as on 6 March 2013.

The Euro depreciated by 0.7 percent in yesterday’s trade as the revised GDP showed that Euro zone growth declines by 0.6 percent coupled with strength in the DX.
