Eurobond market of Ukraine: YTM range widening
Taras Kotovych, Fixed-income analyst, Investment Capital Ukraine:
Because of the announced UKRINF Eurobond issue described above, investors possibly started to sell bonds with maturities in 2017-2021, thus causing YTMs to rise. According to last week's data, last Monday‟s YTMs range widened from 6.53%-6.89% expanded to 6.63%-7.56% on Wednesday (excluding the very volatile UKRAIN 7.65% '13). Also, Ukrainian sovereign Eurobond spreads widened last week as the Ukrainian 5-year CDS rose to 648bp.
This week depends on external factors, especially on Greek news, with the 2013 budget up for adoption yesterday and today could be available for a crucial preliminary report on the country's situation. Such a report which could be pivotal for continued support, particularly as Greece has a significant debt repayment due this Friday and will try to refinance it using short-term T-bills. If a new tranche of support is not issued in November, debt problems in Greece and Europe could escalate quickly, negatively affecting emerging market and Ukrainian Eurobond YTMs.
