  • The RF MGS Index jumped 0.35% to a fresh 10-week high of 1,130.720 points as the benchmark 10-year eurozone yield tumbled to an intra-day low of 0.324% reflecting the downward trend in US Treasury yields yesterday afternoon amid rising tensions with North Korea over its nuclear programme. Nonetheless, by this afternoon, the benchmark 10-year eurozone yield rebounded to move closer to the 0.35% in line with the uplift in the price of oil and ahead of tomorrow’s monetary policy meeting of the European Central Bank.
