Rupee Gains 4 Paise Against US Dollar Amidst Domestic Market Rally

The Indian rupee exhibited strength against the US dollar on Tuesday, gaining 4 paise to settle at 83.24 (provisional). This upward movement was primarily attributed to the robust performance of domestic equity markets, which bolstered investor confidence. Nevertheless, the rupee faced headwinds from higher crude oil prices in global markets and increased demand for the safe-haven US dollar, driven by concerns surrounding the Middle East conflict.
