The rupee paired its early gains and settled 2 paise lower at 83.18 (provisional) against the U.S. dollar on Wednesday, tracking negative cues from domestic equity markets and a stronger American currency overseas.

At the interbank foreign exchange market, the local unit opened stronger by 8 paise at 83.08 and traded between the peak of 83.08 and the lowest level of 83.19 against the greenback. It finally settled at 83.18 (provisional) against the dollar, registering a loss of 2 paise from its previous close.
