- The Gilt curve is slightly flatter, with 2-Yr yields down 0.1bps at 0.737% and
10-Yrs down 1.4bps at 1.441%.
- Comments by France European Affairs minister Loiseau on BBC Radio around
0815BST that the UK`s Brexit proposal is `not possible` and that France is
preparing for `no-deal` Brexit potentially boosting risk aversion.

Oct-Dec 2018, including eight auctions (listed in a bullet at 0805BST) and one
long conventional gilt syndication (1.625% 2071) in first half of Oct. Few
surprises in the announcement overall.
