India's FX reserves rise to $550 bln in week ended Nov. 25



MUMBAI, Dec 2 (Reuters) - India's foreign exchange reserves INFXR=ECI rose for the third straight week, to $550.14 billion in the week through Nov. 25, the Reserve Bank of India's (RBI) weekly statistical supplement showed on Friday.

For the week ended Nov. 18, the country's reserves were at $547.25 billion.

Since hitting an over two-year low of $524 billion in October, forex reserves have been rising as the dollar index =USD fell off its peak. The RBI in the past has said changes in its reserves is a function of revaluation gains or losses, as well as market interventions.

After the volatility in early November, the Indian rupee INR=IN has moved in a narrow band over the past two weeks, with traders reckoning it would remain stable between the 81-82 per dollar range in the near term.
