The Indian Rupee slipped today, hitting record lows against the US dollar as weak equities and a solid undertone in the US dollar overseas weighed on the local currency.

Meanwhile, the trend in Foreign Portfolio Investments or FPIs remains worrisome with the overall FPI reading showing a net outflow of around Rs 24550 crore in October 2023.

Meanwhile, the frontline indices ended with modest losses on Wednesday, sliding for the second day in a row. The Nifty settled below the 19,000 level. Realty, media and healthcare stocks advanced while metal, IT and bank shares declined.
