Besides, increased selling of the US dollar by exporters supported the rupee, but a lower opening in the domestic equity market capped the gains, forex dealers said.
The rupee had ended higher by 17 paise at 64 against the greenback on Wednesday's trade due to fag-end selling of dollars by banks and exporters on the back of strong recovery in the equity market.
Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex fell 302.48 points, or 1.10 per cent, to 26,981.49 in early trade.
