Wednesday, August 21, 2019 / 07:30 PM /  by Zedcrest Capital


 

Results from the recent FGN Bond auction by DMO showed that the auction was significantly undersubscribed, with total subscriptions of only N95bn of the N145bn offered. The DMO also undersold the total subscriptions at 0.14X bid to cover, with a total sale of N13.51bn marking its lowest auction sale since December 2018. The Auction yields consequently cleared c.63bps higher from their previous levels.

 

Bonds

The FGN Bond market traded on a relatively flat note, with yields inching higher by c.5bps on the day, as market players awaited results from the FGN Bond auction.

 

We expect the market to remain in a bearish mood, despite the significantly low volume of sales by the

DMO.

Treasury Bills

Yields in the T-Bills market moderated further in todays session, with some real money demand from local funds on some of the high yielding T-bills mostly on the short and mid end of the curve. We however witnessed persistent selling interests from offshore clients on those tenors.

 

We expect T-bill yields to remain relatively stable at current levels, with c.N92bn in OMO T-bills maturing tomorrow.

Money Market

Rates in the money market inched higher by c.5pct, as system liquidity declined further to c.N367bn negative opening the day. The OBB and OVN rates consequently ended the session at 22.86% and 25.36%

 

We expect rates to remain elevated in the near term, due to the depressed system liquidity levels.
