The Indian rupee gave up early gains to end flat against the US dollar on Wednesday amid a rebound in American currency and gains in crude oil prices. The local currency ended at 83.325 a dollar as compared to its previous close of 83.33.

The dollar index, which gauges the greenback's strength against a basket of six currencies, was trading higher by 0.12% at 102.87.

On Tuesday, the rupee settled at 83.33 against the US dollar.

While strong positive sentiment in the domestic equity markets supported the local unit, a recovery dollar and rise in crude oil prices capped the upside.

“Domestic markets surged ~1%. However, a slight recovery in the US dollar index and crude oil prices capped sharp gains. US dollar declined for the fourth successive session on Tuesday on dovish comments from US Federal Reserve officials. Economic data from the US, however, remained mixed," said Anuj Choudhary, Research Analyst at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas.

Choudhary said the rupee is expected to trade with a slight negative bias on dollar demand from importers towards end of the month.

“Traders may take cues from GDP data from the US. Investors may also take cues from India's GDP and fiscal deficit data towards the end of the month. USD-INR spot price is expected to trade in a range of 83 to 83.60," he added.

Brent crude futures, the global benchmark, rallied 1.13% to $82.60 a barrel, while US West Texas Intermediate crude futures rose 1.18% to $77.31 a barrel.

On the domestic front, the equity market ended sharply higher with the benchmark Nifty 50 index closing above 20,000-mark.

The Sensex ended 727.71 points, or 1.10%, higher at 66,901.91, while the Nifty 50 rallied 206.90 points, or 1.04%, to close at 20,096.60.

Foreign institutional investors were net buyers in the capital market on Tuesday as they purchased shares worth 783.82 crore, according to exchange data.
