Mumbai, Nov 3: The Rupee gained about 15 paise against the US currency in a volatile Forex market, during the week ended November 2.
The Indian unit's move to cross the 39.30 level was prevented due to suspected intervention by the Reserve Bank of India during the last two days. It is expected that Central Bank's hold on the Rupee's appreciation will be continued in the coming sessions as the market will remain volatile, market analysts said.
