The rupee had strengthened against the US dollar after touching an intra-day high of 66.80 yesterday due to selling by custodial banks and some buying from PSBs to meet the oil demand." a forex dealer said.

"The rupee will take cues from the equity market and is expected to trade in a range of 66.42-66.72 per dollar," he added.

The dollar index is currently up 0.25 per cent at 96.11 against a basket of six currencies.

Oil prices edged higher in quiet Asian early trade as dealers set aside weak Chinese trade data and looked ahead to the release of a US stockpiles report, analysts said.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex was trading higher by 346 points or 1.37 per cent to 25,664.19 at 1030 hrs.
