EGB SUMMARY: Several EGBs dropped to record-low yields Wednesday as ECB Pres
Draghi appeared to open the door to near-term easing.
- While bonds are off best levels, core EGBs are in record negative yielding
territory, with 10-Yr Bunds hitting -0.325%. German belly outperforming: 2-Yr
yield down 6.8bps at -0.757%, 5-Yr down 7.9bps at -0.68%, 10-Yr down 7.1bps at
-0.315%, 30-Yr down 6.9bps at 0.275%.
- 10-Yr French OATs and Austrian RAGBs touched negative yields for the first
time in their history. 10-Yr BTP spread/Bunds fell 18bps at one point.
- Some of the substantial gains from Draghi's comments on potential stimulus if
outlook doesn't improve were mitigated by comments around 1330UK by ex-ECB Chief
Econ Praet warning `shouldn`t exaggerate today`s market reaction`.
- Also news of a call between US and China Presidents restored risk appetite.
- Euribor up 6-9 ticks. Latest EGB futures prices:
