Global Bond Markets          

Global bonds ended mixed in October. USTs, for example, remained under pressure amid rising expectation of a rate hike. In the UK, on the other hand, gilts recouped most of their previous month’s losses following the mini budget’s U-turn and the appointment of a new prime minister.

Malaysian Government Bond Market          

Trading was quiet in October and there was only lukewarm demand in all three bond auctions. Local govvies ended the month on a mixed note with yields ticking higher on the short end but compressing lower at the long end.

Malaysian Corporate Bond Market          

Notwithstanding the selloff in October, the monthly gross issuance was the highest YTD. Credit spreads widened as a result.

Foreign Holdings of Local Bonds
