The Pakistani rupee continued its losing streak against the US dollar on Tuesday and lost Rs1.79 during intra-day trading.
The dollar was trading around Rs.211.75, after appreciating by Rs.1.79 against Monday’s record high of Rs.209.96. Meanwhile, dollar at open market rose by Rs1.5 and was being traded at Rs.215.50. Dollar since arrival of new government, the greenback has gained Rs.30.50
According to experts, the rupee’s downtrend could be attributed to widening current account deficit, depleting foreign exchange reserves and delay in the revival of the IMF program.
A day earlier, Finance Minister Miftah Ismail claimed that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) program will be revived within the next two days.
