Sri Lanka bond yields ease
ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka’s bond yields fell Monday ahead of a weekly Treasuries auction with higher interbank liquidity, taking breather from recent increases, dealers said.
In early afternoon trade, bond yields were down about 10 to 20 basis points from last Friday, especially on longer tenors, dealers said.
At last week’s Treasury bill auction more money was printed to keep short term rates down, but excess liquidity has gone up this week amid dollar purchases, data shows.

2-year 01.04.2018 bond quoted at 8.90/9.05 percent down from 9.00/10 percent last Friday,
