In the foreign exchange market, the rupee opened with an unchanged trend against the dollar in morning trade and later improved by four paise against the dollar.

Navneet Damani, vice-president, Commodity Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services, said, "The US Federal Governor's easing of apprehensions in the context of interest rate hikes and softening stance has increased the demand for gold as a safe investment option, thereby increasing the demand for gold." Gold has gained momentum and is poised to make its highest weekly gain in nearly two months.”
