Forex dealers said a higher opening in the domestic equity market and strengthening of the euro and yen against the dollar overseas, supported the rupee.

The rupee had weakened by two paise to close at 54.58 on Tuesday on renewed demand for the US currency from importers and continued capital outflows.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark index Sensex recovered by 93.40 points, or 0.51%, to 18,319.88 in early trade on Wednesday.
