Rupee extends winning streak against US dollar in inter-bank market

  • Local currency has now appreciated for 24 successive sessions
  • Has cumulatively gained 9.5% since it hit a record low of 307.1 in inter-bank market on Sept 5
Published October 10, 2023

The Pakistani rupee’s merry run continued against the US dollar, as it appreciated another 0.41% in the inter-bank market on Tuesday. This is the rupee’s 24th consecutive gain against the greenback, and makes it one of the longest appreciation runs in history.

As per the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), the rupee settled at 280.51 after an increase of Rs1.14 in the inter-bank market.

On Monday, the rupee had appreciated 0.37% to settle at 281.65.

This is one of the longest appreciations runs seen by the rupee against the US dollar in the inter-bank market, and comes in large part due to the authorities’ crackdown on smuggling and hoarding of foreign currency as well as reforms in the Exchange Companies’ sector.

Internationally, the US dollar softened on Tuesday along with US interest rate expectations and a fall in Treasury yields as investors detected a slight dovish shift in Federal Reserve officials’ tone.

The US dollar retreated as the 10-year Treasury yield eased to 4.63% in Asian trading hours, after hitting a 16-year high of 4.88% last week.

However, comments from two Fed officials turned around the mood and U.S. rate forecasts overnight after noting the recent selloff in bonds might negate the need for further hikes.

The global dollar index fell to 106.067 from the previous close of 106.083.

Oil prices, a key indicator of currency parity, eased on Tuesday after rallying more than 4% in the previous session, with traders cautious as they watched for potential supply disruptions amid military clashes between Israel and the Palestinian group Hamas.

"Keep winning before the defeat of the century. Win a few battles . Lose the war." Imagine being so traumatised after 1947 that you spend your days sitting in your hindustani slum, praying day after day for Pakistan's collapse. Keep dreaming behta, we're not going anywhere.
