Rupee gains 4 paise at 60.65; hits 3-week high
The rupee continued to notch smart gains in trade with the currency last trading at 60.65 to the dollar. The currency has now hit a 3-week high on robust inflows into the capital markets, particularly debt markets.

The rupee which had hit a lifetime low of 68.86 against the dollar, exactly a year back in August last year, has rallied smartly.

The rupee is expected to trade in a range in the coming months.
