Further, a higher opening in the domestic equity market influenced the rupee uptrend, they added.

On Friday, the rupee had gained 2 paise to end at 67.05 per dollar on selling of the American currency by banks and exporters in view of sustained foreign capital inflows into equities.

Meanwhile, the Sensex surged by 232.32 points or 0.94 percent to 24,950.31 in morning trade.
