Rupee futures gained 13 paise
Rupee futures appreciated today in the domestic forex market due to higher opening of the domestic equity market, and weakening of the U.S. currency against the major counterparts in the overseas market. USDINR for June future gained as much as 13 paise to Rs. 44.8650 per dollar on the National Stock Exchange (NSE).

The dollar dropped against its major counterparts in the overseas market after reports showed that China's inflation accelerated to 5.5 per cent in May 2011, the fastest pace in almost three years and industrial output increased 13.3% last month, more than the forecasted figure of 13.1 per cent, reducing the demand for dollar as a safe haven currency. The U.S. currency also weakened before the U.S. report that may show retail sales fell in May 2011 and producer price index slowed last month. These reports have scheduled to release at 06:00 PM IST today.
