Rupee Hits New Low Of 76.91 A Dollar

22 April 2020


Mumbai: Rupee slumped to a new low of 76.91 per dollar on Wednesday on the back of a broad-based strength of the greenback.

Weakness in the oil prices and volatility in the global and domestic stock markets weighed on the factors behind the depreciation of the Indian currency.

The rupee, has, however, recovered and is currently trading around 76.80, against the previous close of 76.83 per dollar.

The outflow of foreign institutional investments also is a major reason for the weakness in rupee. On Tuesday, foreign investors sold stocks worth Rs 2,095.23 crore.
