EGBs-GILTS CASH CLOSE: Upside German Inflation Surprise Sets Bearish Tone

BONDS

Strong German inflation data and a rebound in equities fuelled a core EGB sell-off Thursday, with periphery EGBs also weakening.

  • German CPI came in above expectations, pushing Bund yields to session highs, though Spain's missed.
  • Gilts outperformed, with direction mainly determined by EGBs and Tsys.
  • Periphery spread widening continued: Italy 10Y yields hit highs of 2.743% intersession (+17bp) - highest since Mar 2020 with Bund spread above 184bp, a fresh post-Jun 2020 high; but settled down by day's end.
  • Plenty of data yet to come Friday, including French and Italian inflation.
