The rupee fell 26 paise to 81.68 against the US dollar in early trading on Tuesday following a rise in crude oil price and forex outflows.

However, early gains in domestic stock markets and a weak dollar against world currencies limited the rupee’s losses.

The local unit opened lower at 81.48 to the dollar against its latest close of 81.42. It moved in a range from 81.48 to 81.68 in morning deals.

On interbank foreign exchange trading, the rupee was trading at 81.68 to the dollar at 9:25 am.

Forex dealers said forex outflows from capital markets weigh on the local unit. Firm crude oil prices are also hitting rupee sentiment, they added.

Brent crude oil, the international oil price benchmark, rose 0.02 percent in Asian trade to USD 88.21 a barrel on expectations that demand from China will pick up again.
