Bond market update


Bond yields have cooled off by approx. 90 basis points since its peak in September, last week the yields fell by a good 16 basis points (down by 2.22 %) closing at 7.276%.

The bond yields have been cooling due to the falling crude which has now touched $ 50 a barrel, and due to the OMO operations conducted by RBI. The announcement of buying out securities of another Rs 10,000 Crore in Dec-18 and Rs 50,000 Crore in the month of Jan-19 triggered the further fall in the yields further thus bringing it to the approx. 7.2% mark.
