Peso Gains Amid Improving Market Sentiment

ASIA: Morgan Stanley note "Indonesia & Malaysia saw the biggest foreign outflows
from bonds on the global risk sell-off in Q1. However, Indonesia has seen
foreign net inflows since Apr. China & Korea have seen net foreign inflows YTD.
- Indonesia saw sig. reduction in foreign ownership between January and April
(US$11bn) but flows started to rebound in May with improving risk sentiment.
- In China, inflows have been very strong on the back of exp. that the PBOC
could ease more & the index (GBI-EM and Global Agg.) weight increase. We still
exp. inflows to be US$70bn in '20.
- Foreigners continue to sell Indian bonds due to the concerns about INR
depreciation & with COVID-19 not under control. As India strives to be included
in the global bond index, such outflows could reverse once sentiment improves.
- In Korea, foreigners continue to buy local FX bonds, especially KTB.
- Foreigners account for 16.5% of the local bond market in Thailand, stabilising
after foreigners sold THAIGBs to raise cash in early 2020.
- Foreigners have been reducing local bond holdings in Malaysia. Foreign asset
managers and central banks are the two biggest foreign holders in the market."
