Comments: In the open market this week, thin trading sessions made the Rupee to trade with a firm footing against the Greenback and continued with the same throughout the week. The Rupee showed no major change in its price in most of the trading sessions as it hovered between Rs. 60.95 and Rs. 61.00 respectively.

Comments: In the domestic market, the Rupee remained unchanged against the Germ Mark this week too as the market trend supported the national currency throughout the week. The demand of the German Mark remained normal and thus the Rupee managed to keep an upper hand on the currency.

Comments: Yen, like the other currencies in the market, traded at a constant value against the Pak Rupee this week and thus no major change in the values of the currencies was recorded here in the kerb. However, the slowdown in the trading activities of the country have lowered down the demand of Yen.
