Futures Nudge Away From Overnight Lows, Curve Twist Flattens

JGBS

JGB futures have nudged higher in early Tokyo dealing to last print -9 on the day, with a tight range in play as the contract pares a portion of its overnight losses as U.S. Tsys firm a little and Sino-U.S. worry comes back to the fore. Wider cash JGB trade sees the curve twist flatten, with the major benchmarks 0.5bp cheaper to 1.5bp richer as 20+-Year paper richens, meaning there isn’t anything in the way of pre-20-Year JGB auction concession noted as of yet.

  • Domestic headline flow has been light thus far.
  • A quick reminder that the latest batch of weekly international security flow data out of Japan revealed foreign investors recorded net buying of Japanese bonds for the third straight week (and also for the seventh time in eight weeks, largely representing short covering after the ultimately failed challenge of the BoJ's YCC parameters in June).
