Mumbai: The Indian rupee appreciated 26 paise to 75.26 against the US dollar in opening trade on Wednesday, supported by positive macroeconomic data and a rally in domestic equity market.

Besides, lower crude prices and a weak American currency in overseas markets boosted the local unit, analysts said.

At the interbank foreign exchange, the rupee opened strong at 75.29 against the US dollar, then rose further to 75.26, registering a gain of 26 paise over the last close.

In initial deals, the rupee also touched a high of 75.25 against the American currency.

The rupee fell 16 paise to end at 75.52 against the US currency on Tuesday.

Retail inflation fell to a five-month low of 4.35 per cent in September from 7.27 per cent in the year-ago period as prices of vegetables and other items declined.

Industrial production grew 11.9 per cent in August mainly due to a low-base effect and good performance by manufacturing, mining and power sectors that surpassed the pre-COVID level.

Meanwhile, the dollar index, which gauges the greenback”s strength against a basket of six currencies, slipped 0.18 per cent to 94.35.

Global oil benchmark Brent crude futures declined 0.16 per cent to USD 83.29 per barrel.

Foreign institutional investors were net sellers in the capital market on Tuesday as they offloaded shares worth Rs 278.32 crore, as per exchange data.
