Global trade tensions dent rupee; closes at 72.98
IANS 18 September 2018
The latest global trade protectionist measures, along with high crude oil prices, dragged the Indian rupee to a fresh low of 72.98 per US dollar on Tuesday.
 
At 5 p.m., the rupee closed at 72.98 per greenback from its previous close of 72.51 per dollar. 
 
It had opened at 72.60 per US dollar at the Inter-Bank Foreign Exchange Market and remained range bound. 
 
However, the Indian currency's slide commenced from 4.45 p.m. onwards as it touched 72.96 breaching its previous intra-day record low of 72.91 made on September 12.
 
According to analysts, concerns over a rise in inflation rate, growing protectionism in global trade and an outflow of foreign funds from the country's equity market have had an adverse impact on the Indian currency.
