KARACHI: The buying rate of the US dollar was Rs159.2, while its selling rate was Rs160 at the opening of the market on Thursday, February 11.
The rupee has continued to gain against the dollar since the last three days so far due to reduced dollar demand from importers, dealers said.
On Wednesday, in the open market, the rupee lost five paisas against the greenback to close at 159.45. It had finished at 159.40 on Tuesday's session.
Currency dealers said the local unit stayed stable in dull trade.
“The market saw a dull day and not much happened. There was limited demand for the greenback for import payments,” a dealer said.
“The rupee traded in narrow ranges of 159.28 and 159.40 during the session.”
