Rupee rises to over 2-week high; up 16 paise at 59.53 Vs dollar
Mumbai: The rupee edged higher by 16 paise to over two-week high of 59.53 against the US dollar at the Interbank Foreign Exchange market Thursday on increased selling of the US currency by exporters amid capital inflows.

Forex dealers said a higher opening in the domestic equity market and strengthening of the euro against the US dollar overseas also supported the rupee.

The rupee appreciated by 38 paise -- its biggest single-day rise in seven weeks -- to close at 58.69 in yesterday's trade on optimism that the budget next week would have strong measures to put finances and the economy back on track.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex climbed to yet another record-high of 25,924.25, rising 83.04 points, or 0.32 percent, in early trade today.
