Germany and France are the only countries due to sell bonds this week. We look for estimated gross nominal issuance of E11.0bln, up from this week’s E8.7bln sold.
- Germany will kick off issuance for the week this morning with E4bln of the 1.30% Oct-27 Bobl (ISIN: DE0001141869) on offer.
- On Thursday, France will look to sell E5-6bln of MT Oats. On offer will be the off-the-run 0.50% May-25 OAT (ISIN: FR0012517027) and the on-the-run 0.75% Feb-28 OAT (ISIN: FR001400AIN5)
- France will return later in the day to issue E0.5-1.0bln of linkers: the 1.85% Jul-27 OATei (ISIN: FR0011008705), the 3.15% Jul-32 OATei (ISIN: FR0000188799) and the 0.10% Mar-32 OATi (ISIN: FR0014003N51).

NET NOMINAL FLOWS: There are only negligible redemptions due next week but coupon payments of E2.4bln are due (of which E2.3bln are German). With estimated gross issuance of E8.7bln, MNI estimates net nominal issuance of positive E8.6 bln next week, versus this week’s negative E22.1bln.
