The rupee gained 7 paise and ended at Rs 72.89 against the US dollar on the back of FIIs inflow and weakness in the dollar. However, rising crude oil prices could be a concern, which would limit its gain • Dollar index traded negative for a third day in a row after witnessing selling from YTD high of Rs 91.6. NFIB Index, JOLTs Job Openings and Fed speak outcome would trigger some volatility.
