News and Statistics
Inflation in Germany continues rapid decelerating: producer prices added just 1.6% in June which is worse than 2.1% growth in May. Just a year before producer price growth was 5.6% y/y. In June producer prices declined 0.4% m/m.
Russian Eurobonds After a few weeks of relative slackness European debt market entered the new phase of aggravation. On Friday fears suddenly grew over Spain after news came that one of the largest Spanish regions,Valencia, will probably request financial aid from the Spanish government
euros, since it is unable to service its debt. It made the market worried that the Spanish government will probably have to ask EU aid not only for banking system recapitalization but also for budget financing.
As a consequence, EUR/USD dropped to the two-year minimum of 1.2094 which caused a selling wave in stock and debt emerging markets. Russian sovereign Eurobonds responded to the negative news with sharper dynamics than
corporate bonds. Russia-30 lost 0.45% dipping to 124.0% of the nominal. 5-year Russian CDS cost rose 7 b. p. to 192 b. p.
Prices of corporate Eurobonds changed insignificantly with decline not exceeding 0.1% in most bonds. However, some long issues reacted to the external negative. Thus, Vimpelcom-18 and Vimpelcom-21 lost about 0.4%. In the oil and gas
sector LUKOIL underperformed, notable Lukoil-17 and Lukoil-20 went down 0.3%. Long-term bonds of Severstal, Sberbank as well as MTS-20 decline by more than 0.2%.
On Monday morning negative background prevailed in the market. Brent decreased by more than 2.0% on the negative news from Europe and fears of further Chinese economic slowdown. European stock markets opened with a more than
1.0% decline, while Russia-30 plummeted 0.8% in the morning. Evidently, today Russian Eurobonds will close with a deep collapse. The negative dynamics is likely to persist during the week.
As we mentioned above, fears of probable Valencia's need for the government's aid for debt service triggered decline in most markets on Friday. Besides, it caused a drastic growth of Spanish bonds' yields. Thus, the yield on Spanish 10-year
shot to 7.5% (!), which is the all-time maximum since the moment of the country's entrance in the currency union. Meanwhile, the yields on 2-year bonds of Germany, Netherlands and Switzerland got into the negative territory reflecting the flight to quality.
It is not only Spain that raises concerns - Greece is worrisome again. Troika auditors will arrive to Athens on Tuesday to check financial system and the reform implementation. It is already clear that Greece didn't manage to achieve the target readings and carry out the necessary reforms owing to deep recession and political uncertainty in May-June. Mass media report the country will need additional budget infusions of 10-50 billion euros. Earlier IMF IMF
