KARACHI: The buying rate of the US dollar was Rs155.25, while it was sold at Rs156 on Thursday, March 25 at the closing of Pakistan's currency market.

“The market has some good dollar inflows in the shape of remittances today, which supported the rupee,” a dealer told The News on Wednesday.

The rising rupee also forced exporters to sell dollars in the market, further improving supplies of the US currency, another dealer said.

“Dollar supplies are presently more than the demand. The market is anticipating further appreciation in the rupee, which has resulted in more selling of greenbacks by exporters,” he added.
