Rupee trims initial losses; quotes at 61.59 Vs dollar
Mumbai: The rupee trimmed its initial losses but was still quoted down by 5 paise at 61.59 per dollar in late morning deals Monday amid demand for the green currency on the back of higher dollar overseas.

The rupee resumed lower at 61.65 per dollar as against the last weekend's level of 61.54 at the Interbank Foreign Exchange Market (Forex) market.

It hovered in a range of 61.57-61.66 before quoting at Rs 61.59 per dollar at 1045 hours.

Initially, the rupee declined on good dollar demand from banks but trimmed its initial losses on hopes of more foreign capital inflows following recovery in the equity market.

In New York, the US dollar gained against most rivals on last Friday, as a week of data reassured investors that December's dismal employment report wasn't indicative of a broader shift in the economy.

Meanwhile, the Indian benchmark BSE-30 share index Sensex rose by 134.82 points or 0.64 percent to 21,198.44 at 1045 hours.
