The rupee breached the 54 mark to open at 54.20 against a dollar. The rupee had closed at 53.71 yesterday. Currently it is trading at 54.23. The general sense in the market is that the RBI does not want to throw good money after bad. The RBI data suggests that on two days in November, the Reserve Bank of India had intervened, but that had not help the rupee. The RBI’s ability to do anything is very much limited. The rupee is playting spoil-sport and on the exchange rate front, one will need to be prepared for the worst.
