European Bond Research as of March 14, 2017

CAUTIONARY STANCES ABOUNDED among traders in European corporate bonds as central-bank and political moves loomed, with the Fed and a key Dutch election imminent. An interest-rate hike from 'across the pond' in the U.S. is, by consensus, nearly certain. A key political outcome in the Netherlands also motivated caution, with far-right candidate Geert Wilders' popularity likely to presage voting strength for France's Marine Le Pen. As New York trading was in part hamstrung by a mid-March blizzard, gains in Europe's RWE AG and Ocado PLC lent sector cues to bond traders. 


ADI (Advantage Data Inc.) extensive corporate-bond index data showed a net daily yield increment for high-yield versus investment-grade constituents.
