GIlts outperformed Bunds in a fairly quiet session to open the week, with periphery spreads quietly tightening to multi-week lows.

  • Italy 10Y BTP spreads fell to a fresh 1-month low, with Spain closing at the tightest spread since July. No real catalyst, but rather follow-through from last week's ECB meeting.
  • No data out today, no bond supply, and little central bank commentary of note (we heard from the ECB's Schnabel and BOE's Hauser but little market reaction to either).
  • Most attention remains on US CPI data Tuesday, and large supply: still looking for E36.0bln of gross issuance this week, with tomorrow's slate featuring the Netherlands, Italy, and Germany tomorrow, and EU NGEU syndication (announced today).
