The rupee resumed lower at 53 per dollar as against the last weekend's 52.85 per dollar at the Interbank Foreign Exchange (Forex) Market due to good demand from banks on the back of higher dollar in overseas market.

However, it recovered afterwards to 52.72 per dollar in the late morning trade on selling of dollars from banks.

It moved in a range of 52.72 per dollar and 53.00 per dollar during the morning deals.

In New York, the dollar gained against the euro last Friday after Spain's bank stress tests showed that the nation's financial institutions' capital needs matched analysts' expectations, relieving some fears that banks would need more aid.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark Sensex moved up by 14 points or 0.08%, to 18,777.11 at 1100 hours.
