    • The very high take-up by euro area banks in the latest TLTRO.iii round will negatively impact their supply of CP, CB and SP paper and, for a while at least, further promote the ‘doom loop’. Generous pricing conditions will allow for carry trades, partly offsetting costs from excess liquidity. 
    • The past week’s market trend was mixed, with USD markets significantly outperforming their EUR equivalent following the Fed’s announcement that it will finally start purchasing corporate bonds.

    • Bunds made gains, particularly at the short end, as EU leaders predictably failed to reach agreement on the Commission’s Recovery Plan.

    • Bunds made modest gains at the longer end of the curve while periphery bonds outperformed as the take-up at the ECB’s latest TLTRO-iii operation was broadly in line with expectations.
    • Gilts made losses, particularly at the long end of the curve, as the BoE agreed to buy an extra £100bn of bonds at a slower pace than of late.
