While the spreads of 10-year euro-zone “peripheral” government bonds have risen sharply since the ECB’s policy announcement last Thursday, we still expect them to remain very low over the next few years.

A few thoughts on developed market yield curves

While the flattening of developed markets (DM) yield curves since mid-October gathered pace yesterday, we still expect yield curves in most DMs to steepen again in the near term.
