PKR AGAINST OTHER MAJOR CURRENCIES

The PKR’s journey was not entirely successful with every currency. It saw a downward trend versus the Euro, ending the day at 300.6 PKR after briefly falling to 300.49 PKR. With a closing rate of 352.53 PKR, up 1.63 rupees, the British Pound also became more costly. The intricate relationship between the world’s currencies was highlighted by the different degrees of depreciation that the Swiss Franc, Chinese Yuan, Saudi Riyal, Japanese Yen, and U.A.E. Dirham saw against the PKR.

YEARLY APPRECIATION AND MONEY MARKET TRENDS

Interestingly, the PKR has appreciated by 6.65 rupees or 2.38% against the Dollar over the current financial year, with a 0.9% appreciation noted in the current calendar year. In the realm of money markets, the benchmark 6-month Karachi Interbank Bid and Offer rates experienced a decrease, aligning with the State Bank of Pakistan’s decision to maintain the policy rate at 22%. This decision, coupled with declining yields in the latest T-bills auction, signals a nuanced pressure on secondary market yields.
