Bond Market Preview (Wed, 1/7)
Indonesia’s bond yields are expected to move sideways in a narrow range amid mixed external catalysts. The global investors’ optimism persisted after the US Treasury Secretary, Steve Mnuchin, said that he is working with the House and the Senate to pass more coronavirus relief by the end of July. However, on the flip side, the Fed Chairman, Jerome Powell, said that despite a recent uptick in economic activity, yet, the outlook is extraordinarily uncertain and will rely on both containing the virus and government support for the recovery. The US stock market advanced on the 2Q20’s final trading day, in which Dow Jones, S&P 500, and Nasdaq were closed +0,85%; +1,54%; and 1,87%. Meanwhile, the 10-year US Treasury yield climbed 3 bps to 0.66% last night. The global optimism may become a positive catalyst which will limit the potential of increasing Indonesia’s bond yields in the near term. Additionally, the robust investors’ liquidity, which can be spotted from solid investors’ participation in yesterday’s bond auction with total incoming bids reaching IDR72.0 trillion, is also expected to add a positive catalyst to the market. However, the likelihood of significant decline on Indonesia’s bond yields may be curbed by the uncertainty on the global economic prospect amid increasing coronavirus cases globally.
Along with the potential of sideways market movement in the near term, then, short-term trading strategy on Government bonds such as FR0070, FR0077, FR0081, FR0082, FR0073, FR0054, FR0058, FR0074, FR0080, and FR0083 may remain attractive for investors.
