ACGB 3y were down 1bp on the week to 2.06% and 10y were up 2bps to 2.92%. After sharp rises from the middle of April, bond yields were relatively quiet last week. The major focal points were the minutes of the recent RBA board meeting where the board stated that while it removed forward guidance on rates, this did not mean the RBA would not cut rates again if necessary. ANZ job ads showed improvement and consumer confidence was higher after the recent rate cut and a benign budget. The US FOMC also met and suggested that US data was not yet strong enough to raise US rates.
