The Nifty, reflecting the broader market sentiment, climbed 206.90 points or 1.04%, reclaiming the 20,000-mark to close at 20,096.60.

Rupee Gains Ground: Settles at 83.32 Against US Dollar
In tandem with the positive momentum in equity markets, the Indian rupee sustained its upward trajectory for the second consecutive session. The rupee settled 2 paise higher at 83.32 against the US dollar on Wednesday. Robust buying in equity markets and foreign fund inflows contributed to the rupee’s gains.
Factors Influencing Rupee Movement
The weakening of the US dollar against major rivals supported the domestic unit. However, the upward movement in crude oil prices, ahead of a crucial meeting of oil-producing countries, capped the gain in the rupee. The interbank foreign exchange saw the rupee opening stronger at 83.30 against the dollar, reaching a peak of 83.28 and a low of 83.33 intra-day before settling at 83.32.
Analyst Insights and Market Expectations
Anuj Choudhary, Research Analyst at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas, highlighted that the Indian rupee appreciated on the back of positive domestic markets and consecutive sessions of foreign institutional investors’ inflows. He noted a slight recovery in the US dollar index and crude oil prices, emphasizing the mixed economic data from the US.
Choudhary expressed expectations of the rupee trading with a slight negative bias due to dollar demand from importers towards the end of the month. He also indicated that traders might take cues from GDP data from the US and India towards the month-end.
