Rupee down 4 paise

Mumbai: The Indian rupee fell marginally by 4 paise to Rs 45.36 a dollar in early trade at Interbank Foreign Exchange today.

Forex dealers said dollar`s gains against other Asian currencies along with demand for the US dollar from importers put pressure on the rupee.

The rupee had fallen by 34 paise to close at two-week low of Rs 45.32/33 against the US dollar in yesterday`s session.

Meanwhile, the Bombay Stock Exchange benchmark Sensex recovered by 124.75 points, or 0.62 per cent to 20,425.85 in the opening trade today.
