Why is the dollar rising and the rupee falling?
Due to the rise in interest rates due to the peak of inflation in the US markets, dollar sentiment has strengthened and its effect is coming on the global currency market. In the inflation data that came yesterday, US inflation data has come at 8.3 percent in April, but in March it was at 8.5 percent, which was its peak in 40 years.
Inflation in the US is still close to the high level of 40 years and it is believed that the US Federal Reserve will increase interest rates in the next Fed meeting to control it. Its direct effect will be seen in the form of further increase in dollar prices.
