Fixed Income Highlights - June 2019 edition

Latest Edition

Market briefing


Fixed Income markets across the globe have rallied hard over the past month as trade tensions between China and the US continue to pressure yields and keep volatility low. Any spike in volatility is sold as yields grind lower. Investors continue to favor safe haven buying and there has been heavy buying of US Treasuries. Euro swaps continue to bull flatten as there has been strong interest to receive the long end of the curve from the buy side. Across futures and options, volumes have been low with the only bright spot being French OAT’s. This segment has held up well with volumes up about 5%. In the volatility space both implied and realized vol continues to be sold, with 10 day implied around 1.5%. The July Bund has edged under 3.75% as the market continues to sell calls and buy 1x2 put spreads. It’s hard to get excited about vol at these levels as the market continues to grind higher in futures which helps to keep volatility at all-time lows.
