The Pakistani rupee sustained back-to-back losses against the US dollar, depreciating another 0.6% on Monday.

At close, the currency settled at 279.26, a decrease of Rs1.67, as per the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP).

During the previous week, the rupee settled with a marginal appreciation of 0.11% to end at 277.59 in the inter-bank market as euphoria over the International Monetary Fund (IMF) programme faded and made way for economic fundamentals.

Finance Minister Ishaq Dar said Pakistan received a cumulative inflow of around $4.2 billion, including the first tranche of the new SBA with the IMF.

Dar also confirmed deposits of $2 billion from Saudi Arabia and another $1 billion from the UAE. The inflows almost double the reserves held with the central bank, which were reported to be at $4.52 billion as of July 7. The fresh inflows will be reflected in the reserves data for July 14.

Globally, a bruised US dollar took respite on Monday after suffering its worst weekly drop of the year, as traders waited on economic data and policy decisions before selling it down any further.

Last week’s dollar slide began with yen buying, as investors unwound yen-funded positions in emerging markets, but extended sharply after softer-than-expected U.S. inflation data leant support to wagers that U.S. interest rates will soon peak.

Hikes are expected from the Federal Reserve and European Central Bank next week, but beyond that market pricing implies the Fed will likely stop, before cuts next year, while in Europe another hike probably beckons.

The US dollar index dropped 2.2% last week, its sharpest one-week fall since November, and was steady at 99.936 in the Asia session.

Oil prices, a key indicator of currency parity, dropped by more than 1% on Monday after weaker-than-expected Chinese economic growth fuelled concern over demand in the world’s second-biggest oil consumer while a partial restart of halted Libyan output also pressured.

Keeps weakening despite all the inflow of shameless-loans. The hallmarks of a country with totally wrecked fundamentals and possibly soon to balkanize. You can't trick the market, Dar.

@Tulukan Mairandi we look forward to balkanisation of india - Hindus have suppressed Muslims, Sikhs and Christians way too long. I guess Manipur would be the first one to get independence followed by Khalistan and then Muslim majority areas including Kashmir.

@Tulukan Mairandi I remember you kept saying about no IMF deal at all etc etc for last 7-8 months. Please first of all do some self actualization and start realizing that you are nothing but a fool among countless fools, so stop pretending all the idiotic nonsense, have some self-esteem and self respect and stop commenting on any nation's economic situation at all. Thanks.

@Tulukan Mairandi, you are absolutely right, the hallmark of a shameless borrowing spree which will then be consumed by the corrupt leaders imposed on us by the so called “neutrals”
