Just like the U.S. stock market, Ukrainian sovereign Eurobonds opened with a slight morning dip but rallied during the day and into the close. Weak current account data for Ukraine (see below) was ignored by the market. Ukraine 21s closed about 0.25pt higher on the day at 107.0/108.0 (6.81%/6.65%) while Ukraine 22s moved up to 103.75/104.75 (7.26%/7.12%). In the corporate sector, Exim 18s got buying support in the afternoon from RM accounts, with a good size cleared in the 100.5/100.75 area. This morning FXPOLN posted unaudited 9M12 results together with an announcement of possible Eurobond issuance. Its outstanding bonds closed at 100.75/101.75 (7.60%/7.24%).
