The rupee ended stronger on Friday after trading weaker for most part of the session on the back of a retreat in domestic shares from record highs. Lack of large demand and foreign bank selling in late trade helped the rupee notch up some gains. The week, however, was volatile and was also marked by heavy dollar buying by the central bank looking to replenish its foreign exchange reserves and slow down the rise in the rupee. Latest data showed foreign exchange reserves rose by $5.04 bn to $303.67 bn in the week. Sentiments are cautious ahead of India's five-week general elections set to kick off.
Rupee off lows as foreign banks sell Dollars. Sterling on weaker run after data, dollar gains. Yuan weakens but stabilises for week on PBOC guidance. Euro weakens in Asia after Draghi comments.

EURINR last week also traded around the major support 82.8500 and closed around it. Strength can be seen if it holds above the resistance of 83.6000 and it may lead towards the higher resistance around 84.0000 mark.
