The rupee resumed higher at 62.37 per dollar as against the last closing level of 62.43 at the Interbank Foreign Exchange (Forex) Market and firmed up further to 62.33 per dollar. However, it trimmed its initial gains and was quoted at 62.40 per dollar earlier in the day on some demand for the US currency from banks.
    
It moved in a range of 62.33 and 62.44 per dollar during the morning deals. In Hong Kong, the dollar fell further in early trade against other major currencies, as global investors awaited Janet Yellen's first testimony as the new Federal Reserve chief.
    
Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose by 75.23 points or 0.37 percent to 20,409.50.
