GILT SUMMARY: UK markets have had a rollercoaster Friday afternoon on competing
headlines, as nerves appear to be growing ahead of next week`s Brexit votes.
- Gilts are weaker overall but off intraday lows. The Jun 19 Gilt future is down
27 ticks at 127.19, having traded in a range of 127-127.46 today.
- The 2-Yr yield is up 1.3bps at 0.746%, 5-Yr is up 1bps at 0.906%, 10-Yr is up
1.1bps at 1.183%, and 30-Yr is up 3.2bps at 1.696%.
- Small but notable uptick in Short Sterling futures in after 1500GMT tweet by
BBC Europe Editor citing Brussels source that Dutch PM`s conversation with UK`s
May `not a good sign...a sign of desperation`.
- Stg then sold off shortly after when FT reported EU`s Barnier told ambassadors
that EU willing to give UK a unilateral exit from single customs territory.
- But that faded on BBG headline, 'Barnier: no progress in Brexit talks'.
- In the end, GBP now lower than before these headlines began coming out, with
near-dated Short-Sterling futures remaining close to day's highs.
