On Monday, given the recessionary concerns emanating worldwide due to coronavirus outbreak and weak equities, Indian currency slipped below 76 mark for the first time ever and touched an all time low level of 76.32 per dollar.

In this backdrop, further decline is in sight for the Indian rupee, where it seems inclined to traverse lower towards levels of close to 77-77.50 in coming days", Sugandha Sachdeva, VP-Metals, Energy & Currency Research, Religare Broking said.

On Tuesday, US crude oil futures gained close to 3% as the US administration initiated efforts to coordinate with Saudi Arabia for stabilizing oil prices.
