BUNDS: German fixed income futures continue to operate just off of session lows
on the back of the broader risk-on theme apparent during early Asia-Pacific
trade, that came about on the back of more upbeat rhetoric from U.S. President
Trump re: China relations and trade war matters, although Trump did tell RTRS
that he would view a rate hike at next week's FOMC decision as foolish.
- Futures continue to operate around Tuesday's closing levels, with Bunds 20
ticks lower than settlement, Bobls 1 tick higher and Schatz 2.0 ticks higher on
the day. This comes after the German curve flattened Tuesday.
- Worth highlighting French, Irish and Italian bond markets struggled Tuesday on
the back of French President Macron's new spending promises following domestic
protests, Ireland's exposure to Brexit, and Italy's revitalised combative stance
against Brussels re: their budget plans.
- Regional focus remains on these broader matters, in addition to Thursday's ECB
MonPol decision, which will be followed on Friday by flash PMI data from the EZ
& a slew of ECB speakers.
