Forex dealers said a strong opening in the domestic equity market gave the rupee a big support, but dollar's strength against other currencies overseas limited the gains.

The rupee rose for the fifth straight session yesterday to close at a fresh 7-month high of 67.34, appreciating by another 20 paise on sustained selling of dollars by banks and exporters amid a strong rally in domestic equities.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose further by 112.06 points, or 0.45 percent, to 24,719.05 in morning trade.
