Rupee gains 13 paise

Mumbai: The rupee appreciated by 13 paise to Rs 45.35 a dollar, continuing its rising streak for the sixth- -straight session, at the Interbank Foreign Exchange market today, supported by higher opening on the stock market and dollar`s weakness against other Asian units.

Forex dealers said dollar`s losses against other Asian currencies overseas and better opening at the stock markets kept the rupee`s sentiment firm.

The rupee had gained 11 paise to close at Rs 45.48/49 a dollar in the previous session on persistent dollar sale by banks and corporates on the back of a weak greenback overseas.

Meanwhile, the Bombay Stock Exchange index Sensex was up by 104.32 points, or 0.58 per cent, to 18,141.51 points in opening trade today.
