Subject: Rupee settles 17 paise down at 71 vs US dollar
The rupee reversed all its early gains and settled 17 paise down at 71.00 against the US currency on December 16, following rising crude oil prices and fag-end selling in domestic equities. Forex traders said the rupee ended the day in the negative territory after inflows related to Essar steel got completed.

At the interbank foreign exchange market, the rupee had opened at 70.80 against the US dollar. Later, the local unit lost ground and fell to the day's low of 71.03.

The domestic unit finally settled at 71.00, registering 17 paise decline over the previous closing. On Friday, the rupee had settled at 70.83 against the American currency.

"Indian rupee declined after strengthening to the highest level since September as inflows related to Essar steel completed. Rupee should weaken from here on expectation of hedging dollar demand from importers.

"Domestic Economic data are coming weaker and requires multiple steps to back on growth track," said V K Sharma, Head - PCG & Capital Market Strategy, HDFC securities.

In near term, spot USD/INR has support at 70.29 and resistance at 71.24, the 200 and 50 days simple moving average respectively, he added.

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) remained net buyers in the capital markets, as they purchased shares worth Rs 115.70 crore on Friday, exchange data showed.

"Strong flows along with RBI's interventions have helped the INR in recent weeks though world-wide events, mainly Brexit and the sudden show of camaraderie between US and China, could lend some relief rally strength to the USD as the new year starts," said Rajesh Cheruvu, Chief Investment Officer, Validus Wealth.

Forex traders said weak macro economic numbers also weighed on the domestic unit.
