The rupee ended flat at 64.45 against the US currency in an otherwise quiet and range-bound trade amid weaker dollar sentiment overseas. Sustained capital inflows into the Indian markets backed by strong macro environment largely supported the home currency to stay afloat of late.
The dollar trod water against a group of peers early on Friday, as currency investors remained cautious ahead of US inflation data due later in the session, which is expected to set the greenback’s near-term direction.
