Rupee rises 15 paise against US dollar in early trade
Rupee is trading at 69.15 against dollar in opening trade, driven by sustained foreign fund inflows.
Mumbai: The rupee appreciated by 15 paise to 69.15 against the US dollar in opening trade on Friday, driven by sustained foreign fund inflows and higher opening in the domestic equity market.
At the Interbank Foreign Exchange (forex), the domestic unit opened strong at 69.20 then gained further momentum and was trading at 69.15, higher by 15 paise over its previous close.
On Thursday, the rupee slumped 42 paise to end at 69.30 against the US dollar.
Forex traders said, the weakening of the US dollar against some currencies overseas supported the local unit, however rising crude oil prices capped the gains.
