Dollar strength, fueled by the US Fed’s hawkish stance, pushes the rupee down to 76.65.
In early trade, the rupee has dropped 23 paise to 76.65 against the dollar.

The rupee fell on Monday, tracking a larger sell-off in risk assets in the wake of the US Federal Reserve’s hawkish statements, which signalled a more significant and faster rate hike path.
Indeed, on Monday morning, the dollar index, which gauges the greenback’s performance versus six other currencies, was trading at 101.08, just shy of a two-year high of 101.33 set on Friday.

The aggressive posturing by Federal Reserve policymakers for more significant and faster rate hikes to combat runaway inflation has weighed on investor mood, and the ensuing hit to the global economy has weighed on investor morale.
