Rupee Opens Higher At 70.09/ US Dollar
 

In the earlier session, rupee was dragged to 70.25 against the US currency at closing time amid surge in crude oil price which moved past $75 per barrel for the first time in 2019 in the international markets. Also, sustained sell-off in the domestic stock markets led to the fall in rupee.

The gains in dollar against its major crosses to its highest level since June'17 put further pressure on the rupee.

As per brokerage firm Motilal Oswal, rupee is expected to trade in the range of 70.05-69.80 and 70.60-70.80.
