Forex dealers said dollar selling by exporters and a higher opening in the equity market mainly boosted the rupee sentiment.

The local currency had closed stable at 53.85 against the dollar on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark index Sensex rose further by 88.51 points, or 0.45%, to 19,649.55 in early trade on Wednesday.
