Bond market update


10-year govt bond yields rose by another 0.63% last week (5 basis points). The rise in oil prices are further building inflationary pressure on the economy and also widening the CAD and FD thus causing yields to rise.

In a move to ease short term yields, RBI has eased norms for investment in bonds by overseas investors. This move now allows overseas investors to invest in short term debt instruments which was earlier capped to 3 years. Bond market has been seen negative inflows from foreign investors since last two months. This move by RBI will help in having positive inflows in the debt market thus a possible easing of the yields and strengthening the currency to some extent due to rise in demand.
