FI markets hinge on geopolitical scenario – Danske Bank

FXStreet (Edinburgh) - Chief Analyst at Danske Bank Allan von Mehren sees the geopolitical situation as a major driver for the fixed-income markets.

Key Quotes

“With no major economic data scheduled for today, the geopolitical situation will continue to drive price action in the fixed income market”.

“Over the past week, the tensions in Iraq, Israel and Ukraine have driven core yields lower amid flatter curves, with Bunds touching new record low yields and US 10yr Treasuries yields at year-to-date lows”.

“In the short term uncertainty is likely to remain high but once the focus on the geopolitical tensions fades, we expect to see higher rates in the US and a long-end driven bear steepening of the EUR core and swap curves”.
