Reduced dollar demand from importers and optimistic mood from the reactivation of the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) $6 billion Extended Fund Facility helped the local currency make no significant movements versus the interbank market’s last day close.

Analysts said that a slowdown was seen in the demand for the foreign currency from importers and the corporates, while the exporters sold dollars, which helped the rupee in keeping a stable position at the opening of the interbank market.
