Rupee rose to 53.59/60 in opening trade, its highest since February 8 and stronger compared with its close of 53.86/87 on Wednesday.

Asian shares and other risk assets rise as sentiment improves after US Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke reaffirms his commitment to strong stimulus, while a smooth debt sale calms fears over Italy's political turmoil.

Traders expect good support for the dollar around 53.55 levels, while month-end dollar demand from oil firms may also aid. * The December quarter GDP data due around 0530 GMT will also be watched for direction.
