Rupee weaker in opening trade; stocks in focus

Tags: Rupee, News
The rupee is weaker at 61.65/66 versus its previous close of 61.54/55. The dollar has gained versus most other Asian peers in trade.

The rupee is seen in a range of 61.50 to 62.00 during the session.

The BSE Sensex is up 0.2 percent, and will be watched for cues during the session.

The U.S. dollar held firm on Thursday, having returned to levels seen before last week's soft payrolls data as faith in the U.S. economic recovery was restored, while the Australian dollar slid to a 3-1/2-year low after a dismal local jobs report.
