Rupee drops 11 paise to 62.42 vs dollar in late morning trade

Mumbai: The rupee dropped 11 paise to 62.42 against the dollar today on demand for the US currency from banks and importers amid subdued local stocks.

The rupee resumed lower at 62.40 per dollar compared with the previous close of 62.31 at the interbank foreign exchange market. It hovered in a range of 62.43 to 62.34 and was quoted at 62.42 per dollar at 1045 hrs.

Banks and importers sought to increase their dollar positions, a forex dealer said. Capital outflows from foreign funds also affected market sentiment as foreign institutional investors sold shares worth a net Rs 318.91 crore yesterday.

In New York, the dollar fell against other major currencies yesterday after a December reading on the US services sector came in below market expectations.

In the local stock market, the benchmark 30-share Sensex dropped 106.61 points, or 0.51 per cent, to 20,680.69 at 1030 hrs.
