Local sovereign debt: higher up
The OFZ curve shifted up 70bp yesterday, with the long end trading near 12.60-12.70%, while the belly went through the 13.00% level. Price-wise, RFLB 28 (YTM 12.62%) lost 3.00pp, while RFLB 19 6.70 (YTM 13.00%) surrendered 2.00pp. Hence, the spread of the 10-year OFZ to the CBR’s key rate widened to 280bp, the highest level since March this year. Meanwhile, the spread of mid-term bonds exceeded 300bp, approaching all-time highs. However, given concerns that the CBR would use monetary policy instruments to address FX volatility, we think it is better to stay on the sidelines until Thursday.
