 Rupee opens weak at 63.84 against the dollar
The rupee opened the day weak at 63.84 to the dollar, once again heading for the 64 levels. The currency has now weakened from the 61.20 levels to the current levels in a matter of few days.

On Tuesday the rupee closed at levels last seen on Sept 10, 2013, after having endured a miserable August and first few days of September.

At one stage earlier this month the rupee looked set to strengthen to the 60 levels. But now it looks set to weaken to the 64 levels. The currency closed at 63.70 on Tuesday.
