BOND SUMMARY
BOND SUMMARY: A tight session for T-Notes overnight, with the contract sticking
to a narrow range, last -0-03 at 139-13, with yields little changed across the
curve. Analysts are becoming increasingly wary re: the potential for convexity
hedging flows if the lower end of the recent 10-Year yield range is broken
(~0.54%).
- JGB futures held a tight range, with the cash curve twist steepening. The BoJ
left the size of its 1-3, 5-10 & 25+ Year Rinban ops unchanged, with the 1-3 &
5-10 Year ops seeing steady offer/cover ratios and tighter spreads, while the
25+ Year ops saw a dip in the cover ratio and tighter spreads. Elsewhere, focus
continues to fall on the COVID-19 case count in Tokyo, which officials attribute
to an uptick in testing.
- Aussie bonds are still flatter vs. settlement, with YM unchanged and XM +3.0.
The latter pulled back from best levels on the back of an announcement re: the
syndication of the new ACGB '51, with the long end of the cash curve also off
richest levels on the announcement.
