“Later in the afternoon, US pending home sales data for November is also due. This data should not have much impact on the markets.
Focus will continue to be on the movements in the oil price as well as the final government bond auctions of 2015. Yesterday, there was a small rebound in the oil prices and we saw a sharp correction in the European rates as well as US yields.
Italy is selling up to 4.5bn in 5Y and 10Y BTPS. Looking at yesterday's 2Y zero-coupon auction, where the Tesoro sold EUR 1.5bn at -11bp (a record low level), there should be ample demand for the BTPS auction today.
The US Treasury is tapping in 7Y Treasuries - demand is likely to be lacklustre as we saw with the 5Y auction yesterday, where the bid-to-cover was the lowest since 2009 given the lack of liquidity ahead of the year-end.”
