Rupee closes stronger against US dollar
Posted on 4th January 2016
Mumbai: The Indian rupee on Wednesday gained 0.42%, most in one month, against the US dollar tracking gains in the Asian currencies markets.

The 10-year bond yield closed at 6.382%—a level last seen on 6 December, compared to Tuesday’s close of 6.445%. Bond yields and prices move in opposite directions.

So far this fiscal year, foreign institutional investors bought $1.69 billion in equity, while they sold $5.72 billion in debt.

Most of the currencies were trading higher. China Offshore spot was up 0.89%, Singapore dollar 0.53%, China renminbi 0.38%, Thai Baht 0.34%, Japanese yen 0.28%, Indonesian rupiah 0.27%, Philippines peso 0.11%. However, South Korean won was down 0.24%, Malaysian ringgit 0.08%.
