According to a story carried by Bloomberg, the Indian Rupee emerged the worst performers amongst the Asian currencies amid ongoing geopolitical and US-China trade tensions.
It’s worth noting that the currency slumped lost almost 3% against the greenback so far this month, remaining on track for its second-worst monthly loss in four years. The Rupee’s slump was mainly attributed to India’s escalated tensions with Pakistan, in the face of the recent Kashmir’s autonomy issue.
At the press time, USD/INR extends its corrective slide from six-month tops and trades near 71.30 levels.
