Rupee sees 17th successive session of gain, settles at 287.74 against US dollar

  • Local currency has gained 6.7% since it hit a record low of 307.1 in inter-bank market on Sept 5
Published September 28, 2023

The Pakistani rupee maintained its upward trajectory against the US dollar, gaining 0.35% in the inter-bank market on Thursday. This is the rupee’s 17th successive increase against the greenback.

As per the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), the rupee settled at 287.74 after an increase of Rs1.01 in the inter-bank market.

On Wednesday, the rupee had appreciated 0.36% to settle at 288.75.

In a key development, repatriation of profits and dividends by foreign investors on their investment in Pakistan sharply rose by 74.46% during the first two months of this fiscal year (FY24).

Globally, the US dollar clung near a 10-month high against a basket of its peers on Thursday, keeping the yen under pressure near a key intervention zone as investors size up upbeat US economic data and fresh comments from Federal Reserve officials.

Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis President Neel Kashkari was one among several Fed voices to caution markets on the possibility of more hikes, saying on Wednesday that ample evidence of ongoing economic strength meant that more tightening might be in the pipeline.

Fed Chair Jerome Powell is scheduled to speak later on Thursday, giving markets further clues into the future path of US monetary policy.

The Fed officials’ remarks come as economic data out of the US continues to surprise with its strength, defying investor expectations for a slowdown.

The US dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of other major currencies, hovered around 106.58, after hitting 106.84 overnight, the highest level since Nov. 30.

Oil prices, a key indicator of currency parity, jumped to their highest in more than a year on Thursday as a drop in crude stocks in the United States added to worries over tight global supplies from OPEC+ output cuts.

It seems the country has been learning economics 101 from Lebanon, you can’t fight reality, you can try and manipulate it but this charade will come to an end, badly, especially for its citizens.

This is happening not by artificially fixing the currency value, but by cracking down on speculators, and bringing stability to the currency markets. The government and the security establishment who are lending a helping hand deserve the credit.
