SNAPSHOT-India stocks, bonds, rupee, swaps, call at close

STOCKS  
    -----------------------
    India's main share index closes up 1.19 percent at 19,735.77
while the broader 50-share NSE index ends 1.17 percent higher at
5,999.35, marking their highest close since early February, as
interest rate-sensitive stocks such as HDFC gained on hopes that
the central bank will cut interest rates on Friday while TCS
rose on value buying. 
        
    GOVERNMENT BONDS 
    --------------------------------
    India's benchmark 10-year bond yield ends down 1 basis point
(bp) at 7.72 percent but off the day's low of 7.68 percent ahead
of the central bank's annual monetary policy, where it is widely
expected to cut rates for a third time this year. 
    
    RUPEE 
    --------------
    The partially convertible rupee ends little changed at
53.81/82 per dollar compared with its close of 53.80/81 on
Tuesday, on the back of a short-covering rally in the greenback
but sentiment remains positive ahead of the central bank's
policy decision. 

    INTEREST RATE SWAPS  
    -------------------------------------
    India's benchmark five-year swap rate ends down 2 bps at
6.88 percent and the one-year swap rate flat at 7.20 percent.
    
    CALL MONEY 
    --------------------      
    India's cash rate ends at 7.45/7.50 percent versus Tuesday
close of 8.25/8.35 percent.
