The rupee had traded at an intraday low of 172.90 rupees against the greenback.

The rupee ended Tuesday at around 172.50/70 rupees against the greenback, recovering from an intraday low of 173 rupees, but weaker from Monday's closing of 172.30/60 rupees, market participants said. Markets were closed Wednesday for Poya.

In equities, Colombo's All Share index fell 0.03 percent, down 1.98 points to 5,768.54, and the S&P SL20 of more liquid stocks ended 0.19 percent lower, down 5.54 points to 2,926.69.

Market turnover was about 1.3 billion rupees as 43 stocks gained during the day against 61 that declined.

Hatton National Bank (down 3 rupees to 205 rupees), Commercial Bank (down 70 cents to 107.80 rupees) and DFCC Bank (down 2.20 rupees to 87 rupees) weighed down the benchmark index.

There were eleven off-market negotiated deals, or crossings, in John Keells Holdings totalling 1.06 billion rupees, accounting for 85 percent of market turnover.
