Not much happened in the local bond market to end the day. Mostly end account requirements, deals totaled Php 4.35-billion for the day. Yields closed flat from yesterday.

Week-on-week, yields rose across the board due to some year-end profit-taking, as well as a cautious stance ahead of the Federal Open Market Committee in the US. Yields rose 7 to 14 basis points across liquid securities in the 5, 7, 10, and 20-year tenors. However, the yield on the market's longest security, RTB 25-1 (23 years left), was almost unchanged at 4.51% (up 1 basis point). This likely shows the still positive overall near term outlook on local bonds due to benign inflation, and the recent Moody's credit rating upgrade.
