“The bond market continued to trade on a weak note today with only few trades executed during the trading session. Consequently, Yields declined marginally by a single basis point across the curve. The slowdown in mar- ket activity can be largely attributed to the decline in investors’ appetite for FGN bonds owing to the attractive short term T-bills yields , currently trading within the 18.00% -22.00% band. We expect the market to remain sluggish as market players close their books for the month.

The buoyant naira liquidity in the Money Market stimulated demand for T-bills with attractive yields with special emphasis on short-dated maturi- ties (July to October 2017 maturities) . Yields declined by an average of 11bps across the curve (30bps on the short end). We expect the bullish trend to continue tomorrow, with demand extending into the medium and long end of the curve. The “no sale” at today’s OMO session by the CBN may further aggravate bullish sentiments tomorrow .

The OBB and O/N rates fell to 4.00% and 4.53% due to increased market liquidity coming from OMO T-bills maturities of N236billion credited to- day. We expect the market to remain stable at these levels as we continue to watch out for any significant liquidity management actions by the CBN.”
