Bankers and exporters preferred to reduce their dollar position as the equity market soared on strong performance of BJP in Assembly polls.
The rupee resumed higher at 60.90 per dollar as against the last weekend's level of 61.41 at the Interbank Foreign Exchange (Forex) Market. However, it trimmed initial gains and was quoted at 61.09 per US dollar at 1040 hrs.
The domestic unit hovered in a range of 60.90-61.13 per US dollar during the morning deals.

In New York, the US dollar briefly rallied on last Friday after better than expected US jobs data, but it quickly gave back much of its gains on expectations that Federal Reserve bond-buying stimulus would continue into the next year.
Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark Sensex rose by 311.29 points, or 1.48 percent, to quote at 21,307.82 at 1045 hrs.
