Core European FI had a constructive session, reversing morning losses in the afternoon on a weaker-than-expected US core inflation print.

  • Gilts outperformed, with the UK short end rallying sharply (2Y -3bp in a bull steepening move).
  • Peripheries couldn't keep pace, with Italian spreads widening and underperforming peers.
  • Very little in the way of market-moving data (CPI finals). UK sold GBP0.7bln of linkers, German E4bln of Bund.
  • Bond supply is done for the week, and there are no scheduled central bank speakers. Thursday's highlight is set to be UK GDP, first thing.
