Rupee down 10 paise Vs dollar in early trade
Mar 14 2013 , Mumbai
Forex dealers said besides dollar's gains against other currencies overseas on strong US retail sales data, increased demand from oil importers for the American currency also put pressure on the rupee.
The rupee had lost 12 paise to close at 54.30 against the US dollar yesterday due to fall in local stock markets and renewed dollar demand.
Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark Sensex recovered by 46.29 points, or 0.24 per cent, to 19,408.84 in early trade today.
