Mumbai: Falling for the third day in a row, the rupee weakened further by 16 paise to end at 75.52 against the US currency on Tuesday, weighed down by a strong greenback in the overseas market and firm crude oil prices.

At the interbank foreign exchange market, the local currency opened at 75.41 and witnessed an intra-day high of 75.16 and a low of 75.66 against the US dollar in the day trade. The local unit finally settled at 75.52 a dollar, down 16 paise over its previous close.

On Monday, the rupee slid by 37 paise to close at a 15-month low of 75.36 against the US dollar. Brent crude futures, the global oil benchmark, advanced 0.29 percent to USD 83.89 per barrel. The dollar index, which gauges the greenback’s strength against a basket of six currencies, was trading 0.02 percent up at 94.33.

Dilip Parmar, Research Analyst, HDFC Securities said, “The Indian rupee touched a low of 75.67, a level last seen on June 25, 2020. The dollar index stayed calm while dollar demand from oil importers and hedgers dragged the rupee lower. Market participants should keep eye on crude oil, Dollar index and US Treasury yields for short term movement.”

Parmar further said that the medium-term trend for USD/INR remains bullish while short-term profit booking can’t be ruled out after vertical rise.

“The pair is having support in the area of 75.30 to 75, while continue to face resistance in the range of 75.90 to 76,” he noted.
