11:01 am: Expert take on Rupee
Jigar Trivedi - Research Analyst- Commodities & Currencies Fundamental, Anand Rathi Shares & Stock Brokers said, "Indian Rupee spot notched a fresh record low of 78.5963 against dollar index on 28th June, owing to continued sell-off in equity markets coupled with elevated crude oil prices, which might weigh down on the net importer's fiscal balance. Rising crude oil prices once again bring back concerns on the inflation front, which might prompt the central banks to be very aggressive in hiking rates and thereby inducing a recession. Going forward, we expect the Rupee spot to depreciate towards 80/81 levels by the year-end as twin deficits add to pressure on the emerging market currency. The Fed is expected to hike rates by 75 bps in the July meeting, while the RBI meeting is not due until August, which could narrow the yield differentials between India and US, and might further weigh down on Rupee."
10:49 am: Top losers
Asian Paints, Titan Company, Bajaj Finserv, and HUL are the top Sensex losers, falling up to 4.01 per cent.

10:43 am: Rupee falls to record low of 78.58 due to higher global crude prices
The Indian rupee opened at a record low against the dollar on Tuesday as a rise in global crude prices and weakness in local shares prompted investors to sell the local unit, traders said, adding that sharp losses during the session were unlikely.
Oil prices rose about 1% in early Asian trade after the United Arab Emirates' energy minister said the nation was producing near its maximum capacity, countering expectations that the country could help boost supply in a tight market.

8:37 am: Expert take
Prashanth Tapse, Vice President (Research), Mehta Equities
"Markets are likely to struggle in early Tuesday trades, as most of the other Asian gauges have retreated after the recent gains, while US markets also closed lower in the overnight trades. Investors are likely to trade with caution and look for direction once the European markets open, as many of them don't want to risk their money by taking bullish positions when the overall fundamentals are still weak. The market is already facing a long list of challenges from expectations for slower economic growth around the world to the restraining effect of rising interest rates. And the Russian war is still creating uncertainty as investors guess how much pain it will ultimately inflict. Technically speaking, the downside risk on Nifty is likely only on any close below 15351 mark, while hurdles are seen at its psychological 16000 mark."
8:34 am: Expert take
Om Mehra, Research Associate, Choice Broking
"The trend may remain bullish for the shorter term but simultaneously profit booking from higher levels is expected as we are inching towards monthly expiry. Technically, sustaining above 16,000 levels on Nifty this week could result in acceleration of the uptrend, while 15,550 needs to be protected on the downside. If the Nifty breaches 15,350 on the downside, then the recent bullishness gets negated. On the other hand, bank Nifty has support at 33,000 levels while resistance at 34,500 levels."
8:20 am: SGX Nifty
The Indian market is likely to open lower today as SGX Nifty fell 87 points to 15,746. The Singapore Stock Exchange is considered to be the first indication of the opening of the Indian market.
