SNAPSHOT-India stocks, bonds, rupee, swaps, call, gold at 1154 GMT

STOCKS   	
    -----------------------  	
    The 30-share benchmark BSE index ended up 0.25
percent at 17,316.18 and the 50-share Nifty index 0.34
percent at 5,274.85, with lenders leading the charge as recent
steep losses were overdone, but bigger gains were capped by auto
stocks such as Tata Motors, which fell because of worries about
lower sales.

    GOVERNMENT BONDS 	
    -------------------------------	
    The yield on the 10-year benchmark 8.79 percent 2021 bond
 ended at 8.41 percent, one basis point lower from
Monday's close, as enthusiasm over the Reserve Bank of India's
comments on inflation which fuelled rate cut hopes in April was
crimped by worries over the bulky fiscal deficit. 	
    	
    RUPEE 	
    --------------	
    The rupee ended weaker at 50.39/40 to the dollar, from
Monday's close of 50.23/24, as dollar demand from oil importers,
bearish outlook on interest rates and foreign inflows weighed.
 	
    	
    INTEREST RATE SWAPS 	
    ----------------------------	
    The benchmark five-year swap rate ended at
7.60 percent, lower from 7.61 percent, while the one-year rate
 settled at 8.19 percent from 8.21 percent.	
    	
    CALL MONEY 	
    --------------------	
    The one-day cash rate ended higher at 8.95/9.05 percent from
Monday's close of 8.75/8.80 percent, as liquidity remained tight
after advance tax outflows in the truncated week. Money markets
are closed on Friday for a local holiday. 	
    	
    GOLD <0#MAU:>            	
    ------------      	
    The April contract on the Multi Commodity Exchange  
of India was down 106 rupees at 27,795 rupees per 10 grams.
