Bond Market Preview (Thu, 13/6)
Indonesia’s bond yields are expected to move sideways in a narrow range amid mixed sentiments from external and domestic. Global market participants’ worries over the trade relationship between the US and China persist, after both countries are predicted to not reach an agreement in the near term. Market participants will then focus on the G20 summit which will be held in Japan at month-end. Those sentiments reduced investors’ risk appetite, which can be spotted from the weakening US and European stock markets last night (Dow Jones -0,17%; FTSE100 -0,42%; DAX -0.33%). This also may curb the potency of foreign find flow to enter Indonesia’s bond market. Meanwhile, global investors’ expectation on the potential of Fed Fund Rate cut increased, after the release of US inflationary data for the period of May 2019 which recorded at 0.1% MoM, and 1.8% YoY, lower than the previous figures of 0.3% MoM and 2.0% YoY. This also can be spotted from the increasing Fed rate cut probability in July 2019 to 82.3%, compared to the previous level of 78.3%. From domestic, the potency for profit taking is still high, after a significant hike in the previous 4 trading days. Moreover, the market participants are also expected to stand on the side lines ahead of the next week’s Government bond auction. These mixed catalysts may curb the potency for a significant yield movement in near term in Indonesia’s bond market.
Along with the potential of sideways market movement in near term, then, short-term trading strategy on several Government bonds such as FR0077, FR0078, FR0068, and FR0079 may become an attractive option for investors.
