Forex dealers said increased selling of the American currency by exporters and a higher opening in the equity market also helped the rupee sentiment.

The rupee had gained 15 paise to close at Rs. 53.13 against the US currency in Tuesday's trade.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark index Sensex recovered by 86.74 points to 19,746.56, or 0.44%, in early trade on Wednesday.
