- Global fixed income markets posted modest gains in April. The yield on 10-year U.S. Treasuries fell to 1.67%, the lowest
level this year, as lackluster data reinforced expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve was unlikely to reduce asset
- Australian bond yields fell, led by three-year yields that closed 29 basis points (bps) lower at 2.53%. The central bank cut its
benchmark cash rate to 2.75%, citing its concerns over the local currency’s strength. In New Zealand, longer-dated bonds
led the broader market rally. Policymakers kept interest rates unchanged amid muted inflation.
- Bond yields in Canada were flat, as the economy appeared on track for its fastest quarterly growth since 2011.
- Emerging market debt performed strongly, with both hard and local currency debt posting solid gains. High-betaH credits,
such as Pakistan and Argentina, performed well, whereas Zambia, Ukraine and Angola weakened. In local currency debt,
Eastern Europe outperformed the overall market, led by Romania, Hungary and Poland, but Nigeria lagged.
- In currency markets, the Japanese yen fell by the most against the U.S. dollar after the Bank of Japan announced stimulus
measures in an effort to revive the economy. In contrast, the euro, Danish krone, New Zealand dollar, British sterling and
Swiss franc rose against the dollar.
