Rupee falls sharply against US dollar today, slides past 76 per USD

new Delhi. The rupee fell 31 paise to 76.10 against the dollar in early trade on Friday. According to currency traders, the improvement in the dollar against other global currencies, the soft start of domestic stock markets and the withdrawal of foreign capital influenced investor sentiment.

The Sensex lost 1,100 points in early trade on Friday, with a steep fall.

The BSE Sensex started at a low of 32,436.69 points. Later, there was a slight improvement, but in the morning trade it is down 813.26 points, or 2.30 percent, from the previous close at 32,725.11 points.
