Rebound in Rupee

The rupee continued its upward trend yesterday and rose for the third day against the US$.

The rupee touched 69.85 a dollar yesterday which is the first time that the currency has strengthened past 70/$ mark in three months.

This is a big reversal for the rupee which had hit a record low of 74.48 against the US$ on October 11.

The gains in the rupee came amid a broad drop in US dollar against other currencies as well. The dollar slipped after dovish comments from US Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell, calming investor concerns over the pace of rate hikes.

Oil Prices Tumble

Oil prices fell below $50 a barrel for the first time in more than a year as Russia signaled little urgency to commit to supply cuts, while US crude stockpiles continue to grow.

Just days before talks on oil policy with Saudi Arabia, Russian President Vladimir Putin said current prices are 'absolutely fine', while Saudi energy minister said the kingdom is confident Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its partners can reach a deal to stabilize the market.

Reportedly, US President Donald Trump is open to a trade deal with China but is also prepared to hike tariffs on imports from the country if there is no breakthrough on longstanding trade issues during a dinner on Saturday with Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

Traders are expecting that the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and allied producers may agree on oil cuts at their gathering next week in Vienna.
