Mumbai:  The rupee went up 5 paise to 64.73 against the dollar on Friday on fresh selling of the American unit by exporters and banks.

The dollar turned weak overseas after a key US employment report showed that job growth has slowed, which helped the rupee.

Yesterday, the rupee ended steady at 64.78 in a range-bound trade amid concerns over a possible interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex fell 56.84 points, or 0.18 per cent, to 31,312.50 in early session today.
