The Indian Rupee appreciated against the U.S Dollar on Friday supported by hopes of additional fiscal stimulus in a Democrat-controlled U.S. government.
The Rupee ended at 73.24 compared with 73.33 in the previous session.
The local unit had weakened to 73.46 earlier today probably on the back of importers' greenback bids, firm oil prices and an uptick in the dollar index, but recouped losses on the back of strong local equities.
The U.S Dollar Index was trading higher this Friday afternoon in Asian session, however, moves are small ahead of the release of the latest U.S. employment data.
According to a Reuters survey of economists, nonfarm payrolls likely increased by 71,000 after rising by 245,000 in November.
