Rising for a second day, the rupee on Thursday appreciated by 16 paise to close at one-week high of 54.56 against the dollar on hopes of robust capital inflows in view of a series of public sector undertaking share sales, starting with Rashtriya Chemicals and Fertilizers tomorrow.
Continued dollar selling by exporters and some banks, as also a weak dollar abroad ahead of the European Central Bank's monthly policy meet late on Thursday, boosted the rupee, foreign exchange dealers said. At the Interbank Foreign Exchange market, the domestic unit commenced lower at 54.87 a dollar from the previous close of 54.72 and immediately touched a low of 54.91 on early hesitancy in local stocks.
