The rupee today closed at 55.95 as dollar strengthened against other currencies given the disappointing US jobs growth figures. The Euro and Asian markets also slipped on Monday on global aversion.



The domestic unit, which opened at 55.93 against the US dollar, recovered after it hit 56.07 in a less volatile currency market today.



"The rupee today largely tracked the global cues...there was negativism in Euro, which also impacted the rupee," said an official at JRG Securities.

The call money rates after opening flat touched a low of 8.00 per cent to close lower at 8.10 per cent from its previous close of 8.25 per cent on Friday.
