After hitting an all-time low, the rupee recovered by rising 38 paise to 69.77 against the US dollar. Ahead of the US-China trade talks later this week, the rupee gained momentum in early trade at the Interbank Foreign Exchange market on fresh selling of the greenback by exporters and banks.

Besides, the dollar weakened against other currencies overseas as demand for the safe-currency receded, on optimism over a reduction in US-China trade tensions, helping the domestic currency rebound, forex dealers said.

A higher opening in the equity market also supported the rupee's recovery, they said.

The BSE benchmark Sensex rallied by 178.77 points, or 0.47 per cent, to quote at an all-time high of 38,126.65 (intra-day) in early trade on Monday. The broader NSE Nifty too breached the 11,500-mark for the first time.

The Indian currency had collapsed to a historic intra-day trading low of 70.40 before closing at fresh life-time low of 70.15 per dollar on Thursday, down by 26 paise or 0.37 per cent.
