ECB took center stage this afternoon, but really nothing new overall or exciting.
Nonetheless Bund saw a knen jerk price action post the statement.
The contract initially sold off a few ticks, but quickly reversed to the upside.
Some of the bid were also caused by the US IJC miss, combined with a higher revision.
Bund is off its best levels at 175.74 at the time of typing, after printing a 176.00 high.
Peripherals have tightened a little bit more this afternoon, with Portugal and Spain by 2.4bps.
Gilts have traded in line with EGBs this afternoon, and the UK/German 10yr spread trades flat on the session.
We have nothing left of the calendar, and attention will turn to EU, UK and US PMIs releases tomorrow.
