Forex traders said, the American currency lost some ground against major currencies overseas, while on the domestic front, the equity market staged a recovery and propped up the rupee.

At the Interbank Foreign Exchange (forex) market, the rupee opened higher at 69.95 and rose further to touch a high of 69.86 a dollar, showing a rise of 34 paise over it's previous close.

On Thursday, the rupee weakened for the second straight session and fell by 2 paise to 70.20 against the dollar. Traders however said that significant foreign fund outflows and rising crude oil prices weighed on the domestic currency and capped the upmove.

The global benchmark Brent crude was trading higher by 0.13 per cent at 56.02 per barrel.
