The Indian rupee gained 3 paise to 46.36 against the US dollar in early trade today, supported by continued foreign capital inflows and dollar losses overseas.

Dealers said sustained capital inflows into equities and weakness of the American currency against a basket of currencies overseas aided the rupee sentiment.

The domestic currency rose by 9 paise to close at a one—month high of 46.39/40 in yesterday’s session on the back of a rally in equities and dollar selling by banks and exporters.
