EGB / gilt: Taking a bit of a breather after huge moves earlier
The last 20 minutes or so has seen gilts / EGBs take a bit of a breather. The highs of the day were hit around 9:45GMT / 10:45CET with fixed income then coming off the peak as North Americans started to get to their desks. There have been no real changes to the situation since 7:00GMT / 8:00CET this morning when it was announced that HSBC would be purchasing the UK operations of SVB for a nominal fee.
