Bonds

The Bond market traded on a relatively flat note, with yields compressing marginally by c.1bp on the day following slight interests on some mid tenors.

 

The DMO has released the Q1 FGN bond Calendar, with N150bn on offer at the auction scheduled for the 30th of January. Given the sizeable volumes of bonds on offer, we expect yields to trend progressively higher towards the auction, as demand interests’ wane.

Treasury Bills

The T-bills market remained bullish, with yields compressing further by c.20bps following continued interests by market players around the short and mid tenors (Feb – Jul). The long end of the curve however traded flat on the back of the continued OMO interventions by the CBN. The CBN sold a total of c.N65bn at today’s OMO auction, with c.77% of the total demand skewed towards the long tenor (19-Dec) and rates maintained across all tenors.

We expect yields to remain relatively stable, with slight pressures expected on the longer end of the curve as the CBN is expected to float a sizeable OMO auction to mop up c.N383bn OMO maturities tomorrow.

Money Market

Rates in the money market moderated slightly by c.2pct on the back of the slightly improved system liquidity levels currently estimated at c.N30bn positive.

We expect funding rates to moderate further tomorrow, with inflows from OMO maturities expected to further bolster system liquidity levels. This should however be moderated by an expected sizeable OMO sale by the CBN.
