In the first trading week of the year, the Nigerian Treasury Bills ("NT-Bills") secondary market was slightly bullish as investors continue to react to declining rates at the primary market. The week started on a quiet note and maintained minimal trading activities despite buoyant system liquidity (N159.2bn long as at Friday). Consequently, average yield dipped marginally by 1bp W-o-W to settle at 4.39% from 4.40% the previous week.

In more detail, average yields on the short- and medium-term instruments traded flat throughout the week, while the long-dated instruments witnessed the most demand, contracting 8bps W-o-W, with the 25-Aug-2022 (-98bps) bill enjoying the most buying interest.

On Wednesday (12-Jan-22), the Apex bank is scheduled to roll over maturing bills worth N77.6bn at the NT-Bills Primary Market Auction ("PMA") across the 91-, 182-, and 364-Day tenors.

Going into the week, we expect sustained tepid sentiments at the beginning of the week as investors anticipate Wednesday's PMA. In addition, system liquidity is expected to be bolstered by Open Market Operations ("OMO") and NT-Bills maturities worth N70.0bn and N77.6bn. Thus, we advise investors to trade cautiously prior to the outcome of the PMA.
