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

    India's BSE index ended up 0.79 percent at
19,580.81 and the broader NSE index gained 0.77 percent
at 5,950.85, after the U.S. averted the looming "fiscal cliff"
in a last-minute deal, with hopes of a rate cut by the Reserve
Bank of India beginning to gather steam, leading to gains in
bank shares. 

    The 10-year benchmark bond yield ended at 7.99 percent
versus its previous close of 8.05 percent, after the central
bank shifted a bond auction scheduled this week and said it will
buy up to 80 billion rupees of bonds on Friday. 
   The Indian rupee started 2013 on a positive note tracking
gains in local shares after U.S. lawmakers agreed on a deal
which would help avert the "fiscal cliff" but weak domestic data
limited a sharper rise.
   The partially convertible rupee closed at 54.68/69
per dollar versus its previous close of 54.99/55.00. ž 
    The 1-year OIS rate down 1 basis point (bp) at 7.59 percent,
while the 5-year rate fell 2 bps to 7.10 percent.

    India's overnight cash rate at 8.00/8.05 percent versus its
previous close of 8.90/9.00 percent as year-end demand
