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

    The benchmark BSE index ended up 1.89 percent and the
broader NSE index 1.96 percent higher, both hitting record highs
as foreign investors bet big in a country that just months ago
was gripped by market turmoil. 
    India's benchmark 10-year bond yield ended up 2 basis points
at 8.81 percent as investors trimmed positions ahead of a
data-heavy week but gains in the rupee prevented yields from
rising much further. 
    The rupee ended stronger at 61.08/09 versus its previous
close at 61.11/12. It rose to near three-month high earlier
during the day, as heavy foreign buying sent shares to record
highs, although the currency ended the session with only a
slight gain. 
    The benchmark five-year swap rate ended up 1 basis point at
8.52 percent, while the one-year rate down 1 bp at 8.66 percent.

    India's cash rate ended at 8.35/8.40 percent versus Thursday
close of 7.05/7.10 percent.
