India's rupee falls more than 1% to an all-time low, now requiring 55 of them to buy one greenback. The central bank is in a tough spot as inflation remains high while the economy slows. The slide in the rupee - at least some of which has to do with the "risk off" tone of markets - won't help the inflation picture.

  • Well, if India printed a bit less of their currency, that wouldn't be a problem. Their inflation is a disaster. No surprise the locals love gold.
