In Friday's trade, rupee opened unchanged at 71.85 per dollar against its previous closing
The Indian rupee opened flat at 71.85 per dollar on Friday versus previous close 71.84.
In Thursday's trade, rupee ended with gains as risk sentiment improved after the Chinese government said to resume talks with the US for settling trade dispute.
Though there have been reports that rupee is unlikely to gain traction, the home currency is expected to trade in a range buoyed by global and domestic factors.
Meanwhile, Indian markets opened on a firm note tracking global cues and on hopes of government doling out some stimulus measures.
