Sovereign Bond Market: yield normalized to the trend line
The move of China 10yr yield in Nov was dominated by normalization from a short term yield spike in previous month, it is flirting with the trend line since 2017 again. Oct CPI data surprised to the upside (or wasn’t a surprise at all given everyone is talking about the pork price surging) didn’t manage to get the relatively high yield level supported. The main detractor, and a decisive one, is the production price, which dropped larger than expected. This is further confirmed by industrial production yoy, which surprised to the downside.
