Indian rupee regained strength to trade 46 paise higher at 59.93 against US dollar at the Interbank Foreign Exchange market today on increased selling of the US currency by exporters and banks.
Forex dealers said a higher opening in the domestic equity market and dollar’s weakness against other currencies overseas after the US Federal Reserve kept its easing policy unchanged also supported the rupee.
The Fed on Wednesday said it would leave its benchmark interest rate unchanged but cut its monthly stimulus programme to $35 billion from $45 billion.
