United States Dollar vs Indian R (FX:USDINR)
5 Years : From Aug 2011 to Aug 2016
The Indian rupee erased some of its early morning losses at the end of Tuesday's domestic deals as Indian shares rallied on RBI rate cut hopes following the weaker than expected industrial production data.
The IIP figures are disappointing and the government would take steps to give positive signals to the industry and kick-start the economy, finance minister Pranab Mukherjee said at a conference of public sector banks in New Delhi.
Government data showed that industrial production rose 0.1 percent from a year earlier in April, reflecting contraction in capital goods and a dip in manufacturing output. Output fell 3.5 percent in March from a year earlier, according to revised figures.
Paring early morning losses of over 100 points, the benchmark BSE Sensex ended the day up 195 points or 1.17 percent at 16,863. The broader Nifty index rose by 62 points or 1.22 percent to 5,116.
The rupee rose to 55.6550 against the dollar, snapping back from a weekly low of 56.09 hit in the morning. On the upside, 55.40 is seen as the next likely target level for the Indian currency.
