Mumbai | The rupee plunged below the 82 mark for the first time in day trade before settling down by 40 paise at 81.93 against the US dollar on Wednesday due to heavy forex outflows amid strengthening US treasury yields.
Moreover, a negative trend in domestic equities and a stronger dollar in overseas markets sapped investor appetite, forex traders said.

According to Gaurang Somaiya, Forex & Bullion Analyst, Motilal Oswal Financial Services, the rupee continued to fall as the dollar rose sharply against its major crosses.
"Expectations of aggressive rate hikes by the US Fed helped the dollar extend gains. On the domestic front, focus will be on the RBI policy statement. Expectation is that the central bank could raise rates by 50bps and maintain a hawkish stance," Somaiya said.
