Bunds and Gilts outperformed Treasuries Tuesday, with the long ends of the curves enjoying a strong rally despite a near-30Y high eurozone inflation reading.

  • Though the overall tone was bullish, with equities tumbling amid fears over the Omicron Covid variant/lockdowns, short-end USTsys sold off on Fed Chair Powell's signalling a quicker taper pace may be imminent; 2Y UK and German yields rose sharply in tandem.
  • Overall, curves ended much flatter - UK 5s30s and 10s30s flattest since 2008.
  • Periphery EGB spreads widened after enjoying some compression Monday.
