The volatile global currency has caused Indian Rupee trade two years lowest on August 21st. It plunged deep by 29 paise against US Dollar hitting 65.83 a Dollar.

Domestic currency is under a huge pressure created by China Driven economic crisis. Moreover raising tension in between South Korea and North Korea, and weakness in emerging market currencies fueled the fire.

Rupee fall is triggered by domestic factors as well. Investment climate needs an overhaul and earning too needs a boost. Recent offloading in portfolios by foreign investors and global traders also has been a major factor in Rupee devaluation.

The RBI fixed the reference rate for the dollar at 65.8298 and for the euro at 74.2692.
