KARACHI (Reuters) - Import payments, weak global sentiment over currencies and concern over Pakistan's economy continued to hammer the Pakistani rupee on Tuesday, which continued its slide and hit a record low of 88.28 to the dollar. The rupee ended at 88.25/30, compared with Monday's close of 88.02/07. However dealers said the rupee traded at 88.36 in the one-day forward market (TOM). "There are a few payments but the sentiment is very weak about the global economy, and Pakistan's economy as well," said a dealer at a bank. According to a poll conducted by Reuters last week, investors grew more bearish on most emerging Asian currencies in the last two weeks, as Europe's debt crisis deepened. The rupee has lost 3.02 percent this year. Pakistan's foreign exchange reserves fell to $16.96 billion in the week ending Nov. 18, after hitting a record $18.31 billion in the week ending July 30. There was also some concern following an assessment by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) that Pakistan's economic outlook for the fiscal year ending June 2012 was "challenging", dealers said. In a statement last week, the IMF said that ongoing security concerns were likely to limit capital inflows.[D:nN1E7AL24] The local currency could also experience downward pressure in the days ahead due to a widening current account deficit, which stood at a provisional $1.5 billion in the July-Oct period, compared with $541 million in the same period last year.
