The Rupee opened 3 paise down at 64.18 against dollar on Thursday on account of buying of American currency by banks and importers amid hawkish policy statement by the US Federal Reserve.
The dollar mostly held onto gains Thursday as the FOMC as expected left policy on hold. The FOMC statement after the May meeting was deemed to be upbeat leaving the perception that the Fed remains on track for two further hikes this year. The Fed said it viewed sluggish U.S. growth in the first quarter as “transitory,” as the labor market and business sentiment remained buoyant.
