The rupee on Thursday rebounded by 23 paise to close at 73.64 (provisional) against the US dollar following a firm trend in domestic equities and losses in the American currency in the overseas market.

At the interbank forex market, the local unit opened flat at 73.85 against the greenback.

During the session, the domestic unit witnessed an intra-day high of 73.61 and finally settled at 73.64.

"The Indian rupee erased Wednesday’s loss tracking cues from regional currencies and a surge in global equities after the US Federal Reserve’s meeting. Globally risk is looking fairly balanced with two large events of the week FOMC and Evergrande chaos seem to be behind,” said Dilip Parmar, Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

The rupee expected to stay right following huge foreign fund inflows from recent IPOs and in the bond market.

"Markets have now started positioning for India rating upgrade from global rating agencies,” Parmar said.
