Trial now
US TSYS: After ticking higher in early Asia-Pacific trade, following a theme of
broader, albeit relatively modest, risk aversion, Tsys quickly sold off, with
T-Notes making a fresh session low as Corriere reported that the Italian budget
plan seeks to cut the deficit to 2% of GDP in 2021. This steps down from a
projected 2.4% in 2019 and 2.2% in 2020 according to the report. Spending cuts
are planned to cover EUR15-20bn of the projected budget shortfall. Previous
government rhetoric had pointed to a 2.4% deficit to GDP ratio over 3 years. The
government is set to reveal further details on its budget plan later today, but
subsequent reports have added credence to Corriere's story.
