The rupee picked up eight paisas against the dollar on the money market on Friday in process of trading activity, dealers said.

In the final Asian trade, the dollar was headed on Friday for its highest weekly finish against the safe-haven yen since May, as data showing the US economy is on a firm footing had investors scaling back rate-cut bets.
Nerves persisted though, as other major currencies spent the week range-bound, navigating a blizzard of trade war headlines that offered few clues as to when or how a truce might be agreed between Washington and Beijing.
The dollar was available versus the Indian rupee at Rs 71.718, the greenback was at 4.171 in terms of the Malaysian ringgit and the US currency was trading at 7.033 against the Chinese yuan.
