    |

    The Indian rupee continued its rally against the US dollar on Tuesday. It opened 13 paise higher at 69.75 against the dollar when compared to Monday's close of 69.88.

    This is the fourth consecutive trading session of gain for the Indian currency. An increase of foreign investment in the country's debt and equity markets ahead of the General Assembly Elections gave some support against the currently strong US dollar.

    The rupee has gained 0.15 percent so far this year, as foreign investments for the year-to-date period has been $3.13 billion in equity and $1 billion in debt.
