In early trade on Tuesday, the Indian rupee displayed a minor gain of 1 paisa against the US dollar. However, this uptick was influenced by a complex mix of domestic and global factors. 

Positive movements in domestic equities supported the rupee, offset by elevated crude oil prices and the continued strength of the US dollar on international markets.

Global Factors Driving the Dollar:

Forex traders observed that the US dollar was bolstered by increased demand for safe-haven currencies in the global market.
