Sources from Mumbai stated that the rupee weakened further to hit a fresh low of 72.64 against the US currency, falling 91 paise in late morning deals on Monday on rising crude oil prices, strengthening dollar and a widened current account deficit. Previously as per report the rupee resumed slightly lower at 72.18 against last Friday's closing level of 71.73 a dollar at the Interbank Foreign Exchange here. Meanwhile the domestic unit witnessed intense volatility and traded between 72.07 and hit all time low of 72.64 during morning deals.



According to RBI data released Friday it was reported that India's current account deficit (CAD) widened to USD 15.8 billion in April-June in value terms this year as against USD 15 billion in the same quarter of 2017-18, mainly due to a higher trade deficit. Furthermore a dealer said the domestic macro situation and dollar's strength amid fear of currency crisis continued to spook the rupee.

Further overseas, the US dollar edged higher against a basket of currencies in early Asian trade on strong US August jobs data and fears of an escalation in the China and US trade conflict. Meanwhile, the 30 share BSE Sensex is trading lower by 238.01 points, or 0.62% at 38,151.81 at 1055 hrs.
