Sri Lanka's rupee steadied at slightly below 127 rupees to the US dollar in the spot market helped by selling from a state bank that usually acts for the monetary authority.

The spot US dollar was quoted around 127 when a state name entered the market with a quote of 126 rupees and 90 cents driving the spot down to 126.75.

The rupee had been sliding from a little over 125 to the US dollar since the end of a traditional festival period towards 127 with no intervention by the Central Bank.
