The Indian rupee ended 8 paise lower against the US dollar on Monday amid a recovery in the greenback in overseas markets. The local currency ended at 83.37 a dollar as compared to Friday’s close of 83.29.

The dollar index, which gauges the greenback's strength against a basket of six currencies, was trading 0.06% higher at 103.32.

On Friday, the rupee settled at 83.29 against the dollar.

“The Indian rupee eked out opening gains and headed lower following the weaker Chinese currency. The market ignored the positive political news and lower crude oil prices as traders worried about the central bank’s two-way interventions," said Dilip Parmar, Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

Looking at the price actions, the rupee is facing resilience in crossing the 83.10 to 83.50 range, he said.

“However, the seasonality patterns and expectations of year-end dollar inflows may support the rupee in limiting losses in case of short covering bounce in the greenback," Parmar said.
