** The primary market stepped up a gear on Tuesday although it was still a measured session which produced EUR4.9bn in the single currency from six separate transactions, albeit an improvement on the meagre EUR2.35bn which materialised on Monday. For the composition of Tuesday's EUR supply see DAILY NICS & BOOKS

** The IG corporate sector continued to tick over thanks to retail favourite Nestle Holdings while Bright Food Singapore Pte provided some Asian flavour. The former extended its curve with a EUR850m Jul 2025 line at m/s +15bps (books EUR1.4bn+), giving a NIC of ca. 6bps, while Bright Foods secured shorter 3yr funding to the tune of EUR800m at m/s +117.5bps on very healthy demand of EUR2.7bn+. See CORP SNAPSHOT for more details

** The SSA market bounced back after an eventless session on Monday as KfW and SNCF Reseau led the assault on Euros while MuniFin, Corporacion Andina De Fomento (CAF) and International Finance Corporation (IFC) were vying for attention in dollars. For more colour including RV analysis see SSA PREVIEW

** FIG issuers stayed on the side-lines while secondary spreads mostly edged wider. That followed a strong run in the prior week that had seen spreads grind tighter despite widening witnessed in synthetic markets. See FIG SNAPSHOT

** In the covered space, HSH Nordbank's EUR500m (no-grow) 3yr OP was the first German public-sector deal since March and the shortest euro covered deal of 2017 across any jurisdiction. Demand topped EUR900m with the deal offering a NIC of ~2bps at reoffer. Away from the single currency, Bank of Montreal launched a sterling 3yr FRN where demand of GBP1.1m facilitated a GBP800m deal. See COVERED SNAPSHOT


Wednesday's supply prospects

** European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is expected to price a $500m 3yr Global FRN via BofA Merrill Lynch, HSBC and RBC Capital Markets. Taking IoIs at 3mL+1bp area



Tuesday's broader market developments

** EU risk assets opened higher before getting hit on the back of weaker oil. Market focus shifts to Fed Yellen's testimony on Wednesday and Q2 earnings with a few big US banking names to report Friday

** Brent sees intraday weakness, amid concerns OPEC measures to cut supply may be insufficient

** Govvies - BTPs lead decline in periphery, EGBs back under pressure across the board with 10yr Bunds the weakest link among core nations in the run up to Wednesday's EUR5bn 2027 Bund auction

** iTraxx Main and Crossover on course for second consecutive day of tightening, latter posts fresh low for the week

Market snapshot (15.02 BST)

SXXP -0.47% / SX7P -0.01%

Brent -0.06% at USD46.85

iTraxx Main -0.3 at 56.3 / Crossover -0.7 at 253.7


What to watch Wednesday

** Events: Spotlight on central bankers for more clues on global interest rates with ECB's Visco (09.00), Fed's Yellen (13.30/15.00) and George (19.15) all penciled in to speak. Also watching the Fed Beige Book (19.00)

    China Insight: More Small Banks in Trouble as Re-leveraging Underway

    By Tim Cheung 19 Nov 2019

    The health of China's smaller banks has come under pressure as Yichuan Rural Commercial Bank and Yingkou Coastal bank are said to have suffered bank runs in recent weeks amid fears over poor management and liquidity issues. Earlier this year, a rare government takeover of Baoshang Bank and a state rescue of Jinzhou Bank and Hengfeng Bank raised concerns about the underlying health of hundreds of small banks in China. Admittedly, China has entered another round of re-leveraging, albeit a softer one this time. With the fundamental issue of macro leverage unsolved, we expect China's debt-to-GDP ratio, currently in the 290-300% area, to reach 320% by 2025 (chart 1).

Whilst the Brl rally has paused, and for good reason, the arguments we presented for Brazilian economic outperformance remain. Euro Corp Comment: Issuance Slows But it Remains a Seller’s Market It was another active week for the European corporate bond market where another EUR7.455bn printed in the single currency courtesy of eleven issuers (13 tranches). Whilst being a decent total, it did however mark a considerable slowdown from the jumbo EUR11.25bn that hit the tape the week prior. What remained constant though was that there remained plenty of cash directed toward new corporate offerings… The CAD Week - Bias is Neutral to Bearish We get some major releases this week out of Canada, with manufacturing sales, CPI and retail sales being released on Tue, Wed and Fri respectively, but ultimately the most influential topic for the BoC is the ongoing trade war and its effect on domestic industry.
