German and UK yields were mixed Tuesday with Bunds underperforming in a risk-on session.

  • Though equities soared, including the FTSE recovering all its late November losses, UK 10Yr yields touched a fresh post-September low; 30s since the first week of 2021.
  • In the past day, multiple sell-side analysts have pushed back their BoE first hike calls, from December to February.
  • BTPs underperformed in the periphery after rallying Monday.
  • Mixed ECB news this morning, with Austria's Holzmann seeing potential for rate hikes alongside asset purchases; conversely an FT piece corroborating an earlier Reuters report that some GC members want to postpone post-PEPP decisions past next week's meeting.
