Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40

The rupee slipped for the third consecutive day, dropping 15 paise or 0.2 per cent to fresh 29-month low of 68.20 per dollar. It had closed at 68.05 on Wednesday, marking its second-worst closing low.

Sustained selling by foreign investors has led to nearly 3 per cent depreciation in the rupee this year. In the first four weeks of 2016, foreign institutional investors have sold equities worth nearly Rs 11,000 crore, weighing down the currency.

Foreign investors are aggressively selling shares in stock markets because of the crash in crude oil prices and concerns about China's growth. The steady decline in the rupee may have contributed to redemptions as a weak rupee dents the returns of foreign investors, traders say.

Month-end dollar demand from importers, such as oil marketing companies, is also weighing on the rupee, analysts say.

Analysts are confident that the Reserve Bank will defend the rupee and not let it fall past the record low of 68.85 hit in August 2013.
"RBI's reserves have gone down by $4.5 billion, which indicates that the central bank has been supporting the rupee around 68/dollar," said TS Harihar of HRBV Client Solutions.

As of 10 a.m., the rupee traded at 68.13 per dollar, while the broader Sensex and Nifty were flat.
