Tuesday's primary market highlights

** EUR primary issuance accelerated slightly on Tuesday where EUR5.15bn printed courtesy of 7 issuers compared to EUR3.3bn on Monday. For the full list of Tuesday's EUR deals and their pricing steps, see the IGM DAILY EUR NICS & BOOKS

** SSAs were the busiest with four issuers tapping the single currency for a combined EUR3.45bn, spearheaded by a EUR2bn 7yr from CPPIB Capital Inc, whilst KBN and IADB hit the Dollar market. In terms of the day's EUR deals, CPPIB found favour with investors where demand for its deal reached over EUR3.1bn, whilst Unedic's EUR250m Mar 2026 tap and Hessen's EUR500m 7yr LSA appeared to find the going tougher with books last communicated at just EUR480m+ and EUR450m+ respectively. No booksize was communicated on Chile's SEC-registered May 2030 tap

** Fonciere des Regions printed the only the only corporate benchmark of the day seeing the issuer extend its benchmark curve with a EUR500m 10yr line that landed at m/s +85 from a +95/100 area IPTs starting point. Demand was far from a blowout at just EUR850m (1.7x covered). This after Monday's deals from TenneT and Hemso Fastighets AB also received a tepid investor response with the trades only 1.3x covered, significantly less than last week's average cover of 2.815x, suggesting that investors are perhaps being a bit more selective.

** Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (SEB) was the sole visitor to the covered market Tuesday, with the borrower's EUR1bn 7yr line marking its first Swedish covered bond since Feb 2016. The deal was issued at m/s -5 while books finished up at around EUR1.2bn. See IGM's COVERED SNAPSHOT for more on this and details of a covered mandate for Deutsche Hypothekenbank

** FIG issuers stayed on the sidelined on Tuesday although Intesa Sanpaolo SpA held investor calls ahead of an inaugural EUR500m no grow 5yr Green deal which could launch as early as Wednesday. For relative value analysis and a recap of Monday's long date senior issue from AIG, see the IGM FIG SNAPSHOT

    China Insight: Bond market bearishness intensifies

    19 Oct 2020

    Recall, we delivered the below predictions respectively in two issues of this publication last month: - 11 September -- "Despite the downward pullback of the yield in recent days, we still stick with our cautiously bearish view on the bonds. We won't be surprised if the 10-year CGB yield finally reaches 3.25% or higher in Q4 if the prevailing mini-deleveraging cycle continues". - 18 September -- "In our view, continued reluctance of PBOC to act generously will reinforce the market perception that monetary easing cycle is already over and borrowing costs will be gradually creeping upward. In case of that, there is a good chance we will see a strong selloff in bonds in October". Basically, both predictions have already materialized as 10-year CGB yield already reached as high as 3.23%, fresh high of the year, in the middle of this month (October). That's 11bp higher than September 18's closing level...
