KARACHI: The rupee ended with a minor 0.32% change on a weekly basis, but it does not begin to describe its ride during the four sessions – with one off day due to holiday – as the currency fell to record lows before registering a substantial gain on Friday.

The rupee began at the 184 level against the US dollar, but fell for another three sessions, crossing 188 in the inter-bank market as political uncertainty heightened in the country. Falling foreign exchange reserves, absence of a functional government, and developments on the political front gave rise to both uncertainty and speculation.

However, clarity emerged somewhat on Thursday after the central bank raised the key interest rate by 250 basis point and the Supreme Court ordered that the no-confidence vote take place by Saturday.

The developments helped the rupee register its biggest intra-day gain of 1.9% in two years on Friday, which brought the currency back to 184.68.

PKR slide continues

Market players suggest resumption of talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) over the seventh review of the Extended Fund Facility, rollover of loans, and ouster of Imran Khan as prime minister are key points to take into account for the road ahead.
