Subscribe to Oneindia News
Mumbai, June 20: The rupee today lost 18 paise to 60.26 against the dollar in early trade at the Interbank Foreign Exchange market due to increased demand for the US currency from importers.

Forex dealers attributed the rupee's fall to increased dollar demand from importers amidst rising global crude prices but said that a higher opening in the domestic equity market and euro's strength against the US currency capped the fall to some extent.

The rupee yesterday rose 31 paise, logging its best single-day gain in over a month, to end at 60.08 as the American currency weakened on US Fed keeping its policy of ultra-row interest rates intact. Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose by 45.08 points, or 0.18 per cent, to 25,246.88 in early trade today.
