Rupee dives to one month low

The Indian rupee on Tuesday hits one month low against the US dollar tracking overnight surge data showed US services activity unexpectedly rose and suggested the Federal Reserve might stick longer with aggressive interest rate hikes.

The domestic currency opened at Rs 81.9 against US dollars and touched a low of Rs 82.6 a dollar, declining 76 paise.

The rupee was trading at 0.01% from its previous close of 81.8. It was due to a stronger greenback overseas and unrelenting foreign fund outflows.

Besides, a sell-off in domestic equities and rising crude oil prices overseas markets weighed on the local unit.
