Forex dealers said that weakening of the dollar against other currencies overseas, following disappointing economic data and a higher opening in the domestic equity market, supported the rupee.
Besides, easing of global crude oil prices was another positive factor, they said.
The domestic currency had lost two paise to close at 60.14 against the dollar in yesterday's trade amid weak local equities and demand for US currency from importers.
Meanwhile, the 30-share BSE Sensex recovered by 83.41 points, or 0.33 percent, to 25,146.08 in the morning trade on Friday.
