Mumbai: On Tuesday, the rupee fell 17 paise to 69.59 against the US dollar in opening trade on increased demand for the greenback from importers and banks. Forex dealers said, strengthening of the American currency in the overseas market weighed on the domestic currency.

However, it is worth mention here that sustained foreign fund inflows and positive opening in domestic equities supported the rupee and restricted the fall. The rupee opened at 69.55 at the interbank forex market, then lost further ground and fell to 69.59, down 17 paise over its last close. To be noted that the rupee on Monday had settled at 69.42 against the US dollar.
