The pair opened weaker at 53.75 but soon recovered most of its losses to trade flat.

Gains in the domestic share market may, however, limit a sharp upside to the pair. The Sensex was trading up 0.4 percent.

Most Asian currencies also trading stronger compared with the dollar.

Traders will watch the trade data due to be released around 11:15 a.m. for immediate direction.
