THE RUPEE: dollar turns lower

Rising trend was witnessed on the local currency market on Tuesday as the rupee recovered modestly against dollar, dealers said. The rupee maintained its climb versus dollar, gaining 12 paisa for buying and selling at 85.92 and 85.96, they said. In the second Asian trade dollar gingerly tested firmer ground after a bout of choppiness and players did not rule out an eventual 1.5 cent retreat by euro if some long positions grew stale and unwound ahead of expected US easing.INTERBANK MARKET RATES: With quantitative easing from the Federal Reserve now well priced-in ahead of its November 2-3 meeting, currencies have broken higher ground against dollar, with euro topping $1.4160 last week and the Australian dollar testing parity. But squeezing out more gains is likely to be tough until the market sees how sizeable QE will be, with one trader saying, for Tuesday at least, that short-term players were simply flipping positions within tight ranges.Spot yuan pulled back from its recent high versus dollar for the second day, as the People’s Bank of China fixed a weaker mid-point to allow the yuan to take a breather after recent gains.

Interbank buy/sell rates for taka against the dollar on Tuesday : 70.38/70.45 (previous 70.25/70.40) Call Money Rates: 4.50-6.25 percent (previous 4.50-6.50 percent.
Indian rupee weakened after a steady start as strong dollar demand from importers, weak Asian currencies and choppy local shares outweighed support from foreign fund inflows, mainly towards Coal India share sale.The issue is expected to draw billions of dollars in overseas demand that could add to upward pressure on the rupee. But, dealers expect the rupee to be boxed in 44.35-44.65 per dollar band on persistent importer dollar demand.

OPEN MARKET RATES:
The rupee rose by five paisa versus dollar for buying and selling at 86.00 and 86.20, they said. The rupee, however, failed to come out of the slide in relation to uro, falling 27 paisa for buying at Rs 119.06 and Rs 119.56, they added.
