Comments: In the open market, the Pak Rupee stood firm against the Green back throughout the week and no major change in its price was recorded on the desks. There was no major activity in the market that supported the Rupee to maintain the stable trend that it is holding for the last two weeks.

Comments: The trading trend between the Rupee and the Pound remained on a high note and the national currency showed significant gains in its price against the Pound here in the kerb. The Rupee in most of the sessions remained strong and a major gain of Rs. 1/25 in its price was recorded on the desks.

Comments: As it was expected, the introduction of Euro currency physically in the market has not made any major change in the trading trend of the linked currencies this week too. The German Mark traded at more or less the price as it was trading last week. Only a slight difference was recorded.

Comments: The Rupee remained strong against the Yen this week too as the currency was demanded less than normal by the business individuals too. The trading turnover remained less than normal this week too and thus the Rupee maintained its stability in its price against Yen.
