  • Local & USD bonds kick off slightly softer this morning with yields on the latter up +2-12.5bp – led higher by the front-end as weaker risk sentiment filters through from the APAC session and brent ticks higher (+3.07%).
  • Yields closed Friday’s session +5-12bp higher across both curves with USD bonds managing to hold onto their gains w/w, while TurkGBs finished bear steeper.
  • Credit default swaps trimmed declines on Thurs/Fri, but managed to hold below the 600 mark as price action fluctuates around energy prices and the Ukraine crisis.
