Inter-bank: rupee declines for 17th consecutive session against US dollar

  • Currency depreciates 0.09% to settle at 288.14 against US dollar
Published November 15, 2023

The Pakistani rupee maintained its downward trajectory for the 17th consecutive session against the US dollar, as it depreciated 0.09% in the inter-bank market on Wednesday.

As per the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), the rupee settled at 288.14, a decrease of Re0.27.

On Tuesday, the rupee had depreciated 0.11% to settle at 287.87 against the US dollar.

Internationally, the US dollar stuttered at broadly lower levels on Wednesday after slumping overnight as a surprisingly softer US inflation reading bolstered bets that the Federal Reserve has reached the end of its monetary tightening cycle.

The sell-off in the dollar drove a rally for many of its peer currencies, with the euro sitting just below an over two-month high hit on Tuesday.

The frenetic currency market activity was sparked by data showing US consumer prices were unchanged in the month of October, with the annual rise in underlying inflation the smallest in two years. In the 12 months through October, the CPI climbed 3.2% - below economists’ estimates - after rising 3.7% in September.

The dollar index, which measures the currency against a basket of peers, last stood at 104.13 in the Asian morning, just off Tuesday’s two-month low of 103.98.

Oil prices, a key indicator of currency parity, dipped on Wednesday amid signs the United States, the world’s biggest oil producer, is at peak production, offsetting positive crude demand signals from top consumer China.

Brent futures were down 34 cents to $82.13 a barrel at 0949 GMT, while US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude was down 40 cents to $77.86.
