The rupee strengthens against every currency in the market except CNY. The Indian rupee staged a smart recovery from the day's lowest level to end 8 paise higher at 73.24 against the US dollar on Friday, tracking an intense rally in domestic equities. Starting off on a sluggish note, the Indian unit fell to a low of 73.46 against the American currency during the session, but pared all its intra-day losses to finish at 73.24. For a better part of the session, the rupee remained under pressure due to stronger American currency against key rivals and surging crude oil prices, eventually capping its gains.
