Rupee down 13 paise against dollar

Tags: Rupee, News
The rupee lost 13 paise to 59.85 against the US dollar in early trade today at the Interbank Foreign Exchange market due to demand for the US currency from importers.

Forex dealers said strengthening of the dollar against other currencies in global markets, boosted by the US jobs report, also put pressure on the rupee but a higher opening of the domestic equity market, limited the fall.
