U K Gilts Falling To Global I R Pressure

Recommended Posts

LONDON, April 10 (Reuters) - British gilts and short
sterling interest rate futures fell on Monday, catching up with
a global fixed-income sell-off that has pushed euro zone
benchmark yields to
18-month highs
.

Looks like the market may be taking the lead from the BoE. Gordon's "Miracle Economy" may not survive the global IR wave that is headed our way.

But analysts said the market was trading in relatively thin volumes before the Easter holiday weekend and was largely unmoved by data on producer prices and house prices.

Kevin Gaynor, head of economics and rates research at RBS, said volume was particularly light and most of the flows in fixed income were elsewhere in Europe.

I am afraid you are right. With this much activity in a quiet market the results will become magnified when the market returns to full speed. Interesting that light trading can push rates up as far as they have. When heavier trading resumes we should see some nice spikes in IR. Perhaps we will see some interesting activity as things pick up after Easter?
