Rupee moves up 13 paise to 65.29 against US dollar

MUMBAI: The rupee, marking a turnaround, registered a 13-paise jump to 65.29 against the dollar early today after exporters increasingly turned away from the American currency.

The dollar losing some of its lustre overseas and a better opening in domestic equities supported the rupee lift, traders said.

Yesterday, the rupee had plunged 26 paise to an over one-month low of 65.42, faced with continuous demand for the US currency.

Meanwhile, the benchmark Sensex went up 81.98 points, or 0.25 per cent, to 33,115.54 in opening trade today.
