Local sovereign debt: non-residents out
On Friday, OFZs slipped visibly amid a substantial trade turnover. We noted that price action was primarily driven by international accounts. Hence, RFLB 28 (YTM 9.57%) ended about 0.9pp lower, while on the belly of the curve prices slipped near 50-75bp. As a result, the entire curve shifted up 14-16bp. We highlight that globally the majority of the local debt market was under pressure on Friday amid elevated FX volatility. In particular, 10-year Thailand and South Africa bonds slipped in line with Russian debt. Moreover, adjusted for FX swings, OFZs performed more or less in line with peers.
