Forex dealers said weakness in the dollar against other currencies overseas also supported the rupee but a lower opening of the domestic equity market capped the gains.

Yesterday, the local currency strengthened by 5 paise to close at 66.21 per dollar on persistent selling of the American unit by banks and exporters amid sustained foreign capital inflows.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex was trading 125.40 points or 0.49 percent lower at 25,274.25 in morning trade.
