The market displayed a firmer tone yesterday with sovereign Eurobonds adding about a point on the long end of the curve. Ukraine 9.25% 17s closed at 110.0/111.0 (6.64%/6.40%) while Ukraine 21s and 22s moved up to 105.75/106.75 (7.0%/6.85%) and 102.25/103.25 (7.47%/7.33%). The newly issued EXIMUK 18s failed to take note of that, though, finishing the day bid around par. In the corporate sector, tight names remained well supported but did not seem to advance further. DTEK bonds were firm at 103.75/104.75 (7.65%/7.18%), and Metinvest 15s at 105.25/106.25 (7.73%/7.27%). Meanwhile, less liquid high-yielding bonds saw good demand.
