Rupee hits one-month high

Tags: Rupee, News
The rupee is trading at 60.01/02 after hitting 59.95, its highest since April 9 but still stronger than its close of 60.135/145 on Wednesday, tracking gains in the domestic share market.

Dealers say good demand for dollars from oil firms seen around 60 levels.

Traders expect the rupee to hold in a 59.90 to 60.20 range during the session, and domestic shares would be watched for cues on foreign fund flows.

The BSE Sensex trading up 0.2 percent.

Asian shares drew a measure of comfort from dovish comments by the U.S. Federal Reserve chief and signs of easing tensions in Ukraine after Russian President Vladimir Putin called on pro-Moscow separatists to postpone a succession vote.

Traders, however, say losses in other Asian currencies and the dollar's gains versus the euro will limit a sharp fall in the USD/INR pair.
