AUSSIE BONDS
AUSSIE BONDS: The impending ECB & BoJ Monetary policy decision kept a lid on
activity in rates markets overnight although Aussie bonds managed to finish the
SFE off of worst levels. 3-Year futures finished the session at 97.895 (-0.5
tick), while 10-Year futures traded at 97.210 (-1.0 tick) at the close of play.
- Fixed income came under pressure in late US dealing as the White House
revealed it was considering a carve out of NAFTA partners from the proposed
metals tariffs, with one report suggesting such an announcement could come as
soon as today.
- The domestic 3-/10-Year yield differential has narrowed by 1.1bp to 72.0bp,
while the AU/US 10-Year spread hovers around -7bp.
- BBSW fixed higher again today, rising 1.5bp, which weighed on the short end as
the IRH8 contract finished 3 ticks lower at 98.120, while the remainder of the
white Bill contracts were unchanged to a tick lower (IRM8 is now trading higher
than IRH8).
