Forex dealers said a weakening dollar against other currencies overseas on disappointing US employment data and a higher opening in the domestic equity market supported the rupee.

The local currency had gained 10 paise to close at 63.51 against the US dollar yesterday on continued selling of the greenback by banks and exporters.

The benchmark BSE Sensex rose 37.59 points, or 0.13 percent, to 27,983.39 in morning trade today.
