Elsewhere, FGN Eurobonds traded on the London Stock Exchange appreciated in value across all the maturities amid renewed bargain hunting.
The 5-year, 5.13 percent JUL 12, 2018 bond and the 10-year, 6.38 percent JUL 12, 2023 bond depreciated by $0.08 (yield fell to 3.50 percent) and $0.08 (yield fell to 5.78 percent) respectively.
This week, we expect bond prices to rally in the OTC market on the back of expected ease in financial system liquidity.
