BOND SUMMARY: It has been a relatively quiet morning in bond markets with Brexit
and US-China headlines the main highlights.
- After more talks yesterday between May and Corbyn's teams, Theresa May has
formally requested an extension to Article 50 to June 30 with the condition that
the UK prepares for EU elections. The EU is yet to formally agree but overnight
headlines suggest a "flextension" of a year with an opportunity for the UK to
leave early if a deal is agreed.
- US-China headlines suggest no deal is ready but a "new consensus" on trade is
close to being agreed. No date has yet been set for Trump and Xi to meet.
