Forex dealers said that strengthening of the dollar against other currencies in global markets, boosted by US jobs report, also put pressure on the rupee but a higher opening of the domestic equity market, limited the fall.
    
The domestic currency had closed higher by just one paisa at 59.72 on Friday on alternate bouts of demand and supply.
    
Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex breached the 26,000 mark for the first time by surging 137.29 points, or 0.52 percent, to trade at a new record-high of 26,099.35 in the morning trade on Monday.
