  • The wider cash ACGB curve sees 3-7bp of cheapening, with a parallel shift in the 10+-Year zone.
  • Bills run 1-5bp cheaper through the reds, with RBA dated OIS pricing a terminal rate just above 4.10%, 5bp or so higher vs. levels seen late Friday.
  • The weekend saw the Australian government reveal a pledge to spend A$9.6 billion on infrastructure projects, which will be formalised in the upcoming Budget.
