The rupee today surrendered its initial gains and ended steady at 63.91 against the American currency on fag-end dollar demand from importers coupled with emergence of weak sentiment on the global front.

The dollar was almost unchanged against the yen and the euro during Asian trade today with investors avoiding taking strong positions ahead of the outcome from the Federal Open Market Committee meeting.

The rupee resumed higher at 63.87 per dollar as against yesterday’s closing level of 63.91 and firmed up further to 63.82 on initial selling of dollars by exporters.

However, it washed out initial gains and dropped to 63.94 on fag-end dollar demand from importers before concluding at 63.91, showing no change from yesterday’s close.

The domestic unit moved in a range of 63.82 and 63.94 per dollar during the day.

Oil prices were down in Asia today as investors waited for the results of a US central bank meeting and a closely- watched report on crude inventories in the world’s biggest economy.

Worries over the Chinese economy after a rout in the country’s stock market and a global crude oversupply were also keeping investors at bay, analysts said.

Meanwhile, the Indian benchmark Sensex recovered by 104.20 points or 0.38 per cent to close at 27,563.43.
