Maharashtra : The rupee ended at a more than two-month low of 63.70/$ on Tuesday with the non-deliverable forward (NDF) markets signalling more weakness in the Indian currency. Three-month forward contracts are trading at levels of 65.60 offshore; onshore, they’re ruling at roughly the same levels of 65.10.The rupee has lost 1.93% since the strong US jobs data released last Friday — the US economy added 204,000 jobs in October — which pushed up the dollar. On Tuesday, the dollar index rose to 81.20 from Monday’s 81.10, reflecting the US currency’s rise against a basket of major global currencies.
