Forex traders were wary as the rupee began the day strongly but subsequently settled for a much smaller gain against the US dollar. Yesterday, the US dollar closed at Rs201.52, down Rs1.31. The rupee’s rebound is ascribed to the government’s tighter monetary policy, which has banned all imports save essential products and raw materials in order to reduce the balance of payments.
