The Pakistani rupee continued to improve against the US dollar, appreciating for the seventh consecutive session to settle at 297.96 in the inter-bank market on Thursday.

At close, the rupee was up Re0.86 or 0.29%, as per the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP). Cumulatively, the rupee has appreciated over 3% in the last seven sessions after it hit a record low of 307.1 last week.

On Wednesday, the rupee had appreciated 0.36% to settle at 298.82.

The currency has been on an appreciation run since the government announced a crackdown against hoarders and smugglers of local currency last week.

Globally, the US dollar hovered below a three-month high to the euro on Thursday as attention turned to the European Central Bank’s rate-setting meeting later in the day, after US inflation data failed to alter views for a Federal Reserve pause next week.

However, core inflation, which is of greater concern to the Fed as it strips out food and energy prices, ran at a 4.3% year-on-year rate in August from

The US dollar index - measuring the currency against a basket of six developed-market peers, including the euro and yen - edged 0.1% lower to 104.63 in the Asian morning.

Oil prices, a key indicator of currency parity, rebounded on Thursday as expectations of a tighter global crude supply outlook for the rest of 2023 overshadowed concerns over weaker economic growth and rising US inventories.
