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

The rupee had closed lower by six paise at 65.73 yesterday on fresh demand for the American currency from banks and importers following a stronger greenback in overseas markets.

The benchmark BSE Sensex rose 133.24 points, or 0.50 percent, to 26,326.22 in morning trade today.
