Rupee moves up 13 paise to 65.29 against US dollar

14 November, 2017

Mumbai: The rupee, marking a turnaround, registered a 13-paise jump to 65.29 against the dollar early today after exporters increasingly turned away from the American currency.   

The dollar losing some of its lustre overseas and a better opening in domestic equities supported the rupee lift, traders said. Yesterday, the rupee had plunged 26 paise to an over one-month low of 65.42, faced with a continuous demand for the US currency.   

Meanwhile, the benchmark Sensex went up 81.98 points, or 0.25 percent, to 33,115.54 in opening trade today.
