Mumbai: Indian stocks, currency and bond markets are closed on Tuesday and Wednesday for local holidays. Trading resumes on Thursday.
On Monday, the 30-share BSE index fell 2% to 8,160.40, its lowest close since 2 November 2, 2005, as deepening concern about the health of the world economy weighed down markets across the region.
The partially convertible rupee ended at Rs51.85/87 per dollar, above an intraday low of Rs52.01 but 0.4% weaker than Friday’s close of Rs51.65/71. It had hit an all-time low of Rs52.20 last week.
The yield on the most actively traded 8.24% 2018 bond ended at 6.84%, higher than Friday’s 6.75%.
