Hiruni Perera, Senior Research Analyst at First Capital commenting on the bond market performance and upcoming monetary policy announcement.
“In the bond market the secondary market yield curve shifted slightly upwards with the profit taking while overall market witnessed moderate volumes during the day. In the upcoming policy announcement, First Capital Research does not rule out a possibility of a rate cut though at a lower probability of 40% in November. However, we are more biased towards a rate cut in Dec 2019 considering the risk in lower liquidity position.”
