Australia's jobs data lend a modicum of support to ACGB space, but the reaction move proved shallow and short-lived. The report revealed a smaller than expected uptick in the unemployment rate, while participation shrank slightly more than projected.

  • Aussie bond futures knee-jerked higher but promptly resumed losses and re-tested session lows. YM last trades -2.0, with XM +3.5 at typing.
  • Cash space was subject to similar dynamics, yields caught brief hiccups but recovered without much delay. They last trade +3.0bp to -5.5bp across a twist-flattened curve.
  • Bills trade 1-3 ticks lower through the reds.
  • Aussie bonds earlier shrugged off comments from RBA Dep Gov Debelle and Australia's consumer inflation expectations, which moderated to +3.6% Y/Y in October from +4.4% recorded in September.
