Money Market Update
Indian bond traders will await the results of a sale of new 10-year bond Friday to see at what cutoff yield level the central bank auctions the security. RBI plans to sell Rs 26,000 crore ($3.5 billion) of government bonds, including Rs 14,000 crore of a new benchmark 10-year bond maturing in 2031.
10-year yields fell 4bps to 6.13% on Thursday; while the current benchmark coupon was set at 5.85%, five traders surveyed by Bloomberg expects the central bank to sell the new bond at a cutoff yield of 6.1% at Friday’s auction
“Given the RBI’s focus on keeping yields around 6% and market already pricing-in higher cutoff yields for the new paper, it’s a possibility that the RBI is poised for another round of tussle,” says Madhavi Arora, lead economist at Emkay Global Financial Services.“The RBI will have less sway over the 10-year yields initially”
