Mumbai, Jul 10: The rupee recovered marginally by 9 paise at 55.83 against the US dollar in early trade on Tuesday on the Interbank Foreign Exchange market on dollar selling by banks and exporters.

Forex dealers said a higher opening in the stock market also helped the local unit to recover after four sessions of losses. However, strong dollar overseas against euro on disappointing US jobs growth figures capped rupee's gains.

The rupee had lost a hefty 50 paise to close at 55.92 against the dollar on Monday on persistent dollar demand.

In the last four days, the rupee has tumbled by 154 paise or 2.83 per cent.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark index Sensex recovered by 79.20 points, or 0.45 per cent, to 17,471.18.
