Mumbai: The rupee appreciated by 21 paise to 69.09 against the US dollar in opening trade on Wednesday, driven by the weakening of the greenback in overseas markets.

The rupee opened strong at 69.26 at the interbank forex market then gained further ground and touched 69.09 amid a weak opening in domestic equities, displaying gains of 21 paise over its last close.

The rupee Tuesday had strengthened by 37 paise to close at 69.30 against the US dollar.

Forex dealers said, selling of the American currency by exporters supported the rupee. Moreover, IMF's bullish growth outlook for the Indian economy also added strength to the local currency.

According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), India is projected to grow at 7.3 per cent in 2019 and 7.5 per cent in 2020, supported by the continued recovery of investment and robust consumption, thus remaining the fastest growing major economy of the world.

Meanwhile, foreign investors (FIIs) remained net buyers in the capital markets, putting in Rs 1,212.35 crore on a net basis Tuesday, the provisional exchange data showed.

Brent crude futures, the global oil benchmark, eased 0.03 per cent to USD 70.59 per barrel.

Domestic equity benchmarks opened on a weak note on Wednesday tracking negative cues from international markets after IMF cut global growth estimate to 3.3 per cent for this year amid geopolitical issues like US-China trade tiff and Brexit.

The BSE Sensex was trading 11.68 points or 0.03 per cent lower at 38,927.54. The NSE Nifty was trading flat at 11,671.70 in the early session.
