The rupee appreciated by 14 paise to 45.10 against the American currency in opening trade at the forex market. Dealers said dollar weakness vis-a-vis other Asian currencies mainly kept the rupee sentiment firm, but a subdued trend in the stock markets capped the gains.
The rupee had lost 44 paise to close at a seven-week low of Rs 45.24/25 against the US currency in the previous session on the back of sustained dollar demand from importers amid a strong dollar overseas.
Meanwhile, the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) benchmark Sensex fell by 63.92 points, or 0.34%, to 20,245.77 in opening trade on Tuesday.
