Forex dealers said a higher opening in the domestic equity market and strengthening of euro, which gained 1.5% against the dollar overseas after European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi made upbeat remarks about the euro-zone's economic outlook, supported the rupee.

The rupee had gained 18 paise to close at one-week high of 54.57 against the US currency on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark index Sensex rose 176.25 points, to 19,839.80 or 0.89% in early trade on Friday.
