The  rupee swung between gains and losses before ending unchanged  against the  US$ ,  as fears of foreign fund outlflows were offset by weak  US$ against major currencies • The  US$  posted losses against major currencies as  the  Euro and JPY  rose sharply even as rate hike setiment remain weak. The Euro rallied posting gains of over 1% leading to losses of almost 0.70% in the dollar index.
