Rupee up 19 paise against dollar ahead of key macro data release

Press Trust of India/Mumbai 12 Jul 18 | 04:41 PM

The rupee firmed up by 19 paise to 68.58 against the dollar in early trade on Thursday ahead of the release of a key index of industrial production (IIP) and inflation data amid foreign capital inflows.

Forex dealers said selling of the greenback by banks and exporters supported the rupee. However, dollar's strength against other currencies overseas, due to mounting US-China trade tensions and strong US inflation data, capped the gains.
