Trial now
BUNDS
BUNDS: German FI futures have followed Tsys lower overnight. Schatz -1.5 ticks,
Bobls -8.0 ticks, Bunds -22 ticks.
- A combination of less dovish Fedspeak and technical resistance in Bunds
(briefly breached, resulting in a fresh contract high) capped German FI's gains
on Tuesday, after broader risk-off flows underpinned for a chunk of the session,
allowing a swathe of benchmark EGB yields to register fresh all-time lows on the
day as semi-core outperformed core, though Austria underperformed after it
mandated banks for a possible fresh round of 100-Year bond issuance. ECB's
Coeure refrained from touching on monetary policy late Tuesday.
- On the issuance front, yesterday's Schatz auction was weak.
- German & French consumer confidence and an address from ECB's Mersch provide
the highlights today, although the topic of Mersch's opening remarks is "The new
challenges raised by investment arbitration for the EU legal order," so
potential for nothing at all on the MonPol front. Eyes also on any further
details surrounding the aforementioned 100-Year issuance out of Austria.
