Rupee falls 24 paise to 82.09 against US dollar

MUMBAI: The rupee declined 24 paise to 82.09 against the US dollar in early trade on Tuesday as heavy selling pressure in domestic equities and rising crude prices overseas weighed on investor sentiment. Besides, foreign fund outflows put pressure on the domestic unit, forex dealers said.
At the interbank foreign exchange, the domestic unit opened weak at 81.94 against the dollar, then slipped further to 82.09, registering a fall of 24 paise over its previous close.
In the previous session on Monday, the rupee had settled down by 52 paise at 81.85 against the dollar.
Meanwhile, the dollar index, which gauges the greenback’s strength against a basket of six currencies, fell 0.07 per cent to 105.22.
In the domestic equity market, the 30-share sensex was trading 353.44 points or 0.56 per cent lower at 62,481.16. The broader Nifty fell 99.30 points or 0.53 per cent to 18,601.75.
