Rupee may witness bearish trend next week


Rupee may witness bearish trend next week

Stock markets generally move in tandem with the rupee and markets are expected to be weak paving the way for a downfall of the rupee.

Meanwhile, crude oil imports will continue to put pressure on the rupee, as the commodity refuses to decline.
