TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The yield on the German 10-year Bund fell to the 0.7% level, the lowest in over three months, as the worsening macroeconomic backdrop and strict measures to save energy drove investors to safer government debt. Low natural gas storage levels in Germany raised concerns of harsh rationing ahead of the winter, while the EU agreed to cut back gas usage by 15% until March. In the meantime, PMI figures confirmed that manufacturing activity in the Eurozone’s largest economies contracted in July. Concerns of economic slowdown were also prevalent amid Germany’s stalled GDP in Q2 and an increase in unemployment. In the meantime, investors continued to assess the impact that the TPI may have on bond yield spreads.
