Rupee ends marginally weaker ahead of U.S. inflation test
The Indian rupee eased slightly against the dollar on Thursday, as investors were cautious ahead of U.S. inflation data that is likely to come in hot and prompt the Federal Reserve to deliver a large rate hike.The rupee ended at 82.3450, compared with its previous close of 82.3150, after trading in a narrow range through the session.The currency has ended at or around 82.32 for the past four sessions, likely due to the Reserve Bank of India’s intervention though Thursday, traders said.They believed the rupee had likely found its range for now, after hitting a record low of 82.6825 on Monday.”We don’t foresee a large change in the rupee. There is a lot of selling interest around 82.50-82.60 per dollar in the market,” said Ritesh Agarwal, head of treasury at CTBC Bank.

Retail inflation persisting above the desired levels has been a major cause of concern for the Indian economy. This, coupled with declining industrial production in August may not be taken well by the market because Indian economy is anticipated to sustain its resilience. In this backdrop, the impending US inflation figures, which are forecasted to remain high, may cause volatility in the global market
