Forex Market: Indian rupee falls against US dollar

Mumbai: The Indian rupee depreciated against the US dollar on Wednesday. The negative trend in domestic equities,  elevated crude oil prices and strengthening of the American currency in the overseas market weighed  upon the Indian currency.

At the interbank foreign exchange, the local currency opened at 83.22 and lost further ground to trade at 83.27 against the US dollar, registering a loss of 9 paise from its previous closing level. On Tuesday, the Indian rupee pared initial gains to settle 5 paise lower at 83.18 against the US dollar.
