Rupee hits more than 7 month high

Tags: Rupee, News
The rupee strengthened to its highest level in more than seven months on Tuesday, tracking broad global losses in the dollar and as foreign investors continued to buy into a record-setting rally in domestic shares this month.

The U.S. dollar nursed broad losses early on Tuesday, having come under pressure late in New York as investors bought the euro and drove the Australian dollar to its highest this year.

The partially convertible rupee trading at 60.50/51 per dollar at 9:06 a.m., its strongest level since August 12 and higher than its Monday's close of 60.77/78.

Overseas investors bought Indian shares worth 14.65 billion rupees and 10.56 billion rupees worth of index futures on Monday, when shares hit a record high, provisional exchange data showed.
