Rupee Opens Higher On RBI Policy Shift

25 January, 2012

The rupee opened stronger on Wednesday on expectations for continued foreign fund inflows after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) signalled a shift in its policy to support growth.

The RBI cut the cash reserve ratio by 50 basis points on Tuesday to ease tight liquidity, but held key rates steady as core inflation remains stubbornly high.

RBI Governor Duvvuri Subbarao said financial markets should not be under the impression that recent administrative steps that authorities have taken to curb speculation in foreign exchange are temporary.

At 9 a.m., the rupee opened at 50.00 to the dollar, firmer than 50.07/08 at close on Tuesday.
