(RTTNews) - The Indian rupee weakened against the U.S. dollar in afternoon deals on Monday, as strong U.S. non-farm payrolls report intensified expectations for aggressive interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve.
Expectations for another 75 basis-point rate hike at the September meeting have grown following the data.
The Indian rupee dropped to a 4-day low of 79.59 against the greenback from Friday's close of 79.35. Immediate support for the currency is possibly seen around the 80.00 level.
