Markets Volatile, 3-Day Gain Momentum Halted 

Mumbai (Maharashtra): Indian markets opened to volatile trade on Friday morning. It also snapped their 3-day rally. 

Sensex dropped 138 points to 62,134.65 levels at 9.39 am as Nifty declined 23 points to 18,460.60 in the early session of Friday.

With positive cues from US Fed Reserve earlier this week, regarding slower growth on rate hikes, Indian equity markets mirrored its US counterparts and rallied with a majority of shares gaining momentum.

However, Friday morning saw selling pressures dragging the indices and declined after being volatile.

Rupee closed higher at 81.63 on Thursday as the dollar index dropped against a basket of world currencies after Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) minutes indicated a less hawkish stance going forward. Asian peers also picked up in the forex market.

US dollar index is a currency index, created by the Federal Reserve, to measure the exchange rate of the USD compared to the nations that it trades with the most, the more trade a country has with the US the more that exchange rate weighs on the index.

Experts said Indian rupee is expected to remain under pressure in 2023, moving between 84 to even hit as low as 85 mark against the US dollar. 

The rupee is currently around 81.7 against the US currency.
