Expected N351bn FGN Bond Maturity to Boost Auction Demand

The DMO is set to auction a total of c.N100bn FGN bonds at the auction scheduled for tomorrow. Whilst we expect demand at the auction to be robust given the c.N351bn Jun 2019 bond maturity, we expect stop rates at the auction to still clear above the previous auction levels, given the bearish sentiments within the FGN bond space which lifted yields higher during the month. 

Below are highlights from activities in the fixed income and forex market today.

 

Bonds

The FGN Bond market remained relatively stable, with yields slightly lower by c.4bps on the day, following renewed demand interests on the short end of the curve.

Treasury Bills

The T-bills market traded on a bullish note with demand interests notable across the curve, largely supported by the surplus money market liquidity and continued abesence of an OMO auction by the CBN. 

We expect the mild bullish sentiments to persist over the course of the week, barring an OMO auction, which should likely resume next week due to significant inflows expected from FAAC Payments and Bond Maturities.

Money Market

Rates in the money market declined by c.3pct as there were no significant funding pressures, whilst system liquidity remained moderately robust at c.N290bn positive. The OBB and OVN rates consequently ended the session at 9.86% and 10.43% respectively. 

We expect rates to remain relatively stable, as there are no significant outflows anticipated.

Eurobonds

The NGERIA Sovereigns weakened slightly in today’s session, with yields marginally higher by c.2bps to 6.78% on average. 

Demand Interests in the NGERIA Corps remained firm, with most papers unavailable to trade in the market on the back of the significant demand from the ACCESS and FBNNL Calls. The FBNNL 21s however continued to weaken due to the call announcement and remained the outlier amongst the bank papers.
