MUMBAI, May 30 (PTI): The rupee depreciated by 7 paise to 82.70 (provisional) against the US dollar on Tuesday as the strength of the American currency in the overseas market weighed on investor sentiments.

A positive trend in domestic equities, foreign capital inflows and a steep fall in the crude prices capped the losses in the domestic unit, forex traders said.
