- YM +6.0, XM +9.0, leaving YM/XM flatter at 33.5.
- There was a solid enough auction of ACGB 1.50% 21 Jun 2031 with the average
yield 0.15bp below the yield of the line at the time of issuance. Cover ratio a
touch disappointing when adjusted for size vs. prior auction, but didn't
represent anything dreadful given that Friday's auction of ACGB 3.25% 21 April

for duration was likely to provide some underlying support at today's auction
when compared to Friday's offering.

covered paper, with ADB launching min. A$300 min of 5-Year paper.
