Mumbai: The rupee rebounded from the six-month low and appreciated by 55 paise to 70.85 against the US dollar in early trade on Wednesday amid positive opening in domestic equity market and easing crude oil prices.

On Tuesday, the rupee had plunged 62 paise to close at a nearly six-month low of 71.40 against the US dollar in line with battered equities as global market turmoil and Argentine currency crash drove investors to safe havens.
