GILT SUMMARY
GILT SUMMARY: A rollercoaster week for Gilts ended with a spike higher as PM May
delivered a defiant speech that left the impression that Brexit talks with the
EU had hit an impasse.
- The Dec 18 Gilt future is up 43 ticks at 121.26, having traded in a range of
120.77-121.35 today. 
- There has been a rally across the curve in a bull steepening action, with the
2-Yr yield down 2.3bps at 0.808%, 5-Yr down 3.6bps at 1.142%, 10-Yr down 3.8bps
at 1.547%, and 30-Yr down 3.3bps at 1.892%.
- With a no-deal Brexit very much back in play (if it had ever left play,
considering the lack of a breakthrough at the EU summit this week), rate hike
expectations have fallen considerably.
- Market pricing for next BoE hike has moved this week from Aug 2019, to Jun
2019, back to Aug.
- DMO announced timing for syndication of 1.625% 2071 Gilt in the week
commencing 8 October 2018.
- Next week, BOE speakers include Vlieghe, Haldane, Ramsden, and Carney.
