Mumbai, Nov 24 (PTI) The rupee appreciated by 23 paise to close at 81.70 against the US dollar on Thursday as a weak greenback in the overseas market and a rally in domestic equities boosted investor sentiment.

Forex traders said the dollar fell in international trade post the weak US data and dovish Fed minutes.

At the interbank foreign exchange market, the local unit opened at 81.72 and touched an intra-day high of 81.60 and a low of 81.77 against the greenback.
