sovereign bond issuances

Difference between Net issuance of bonds and ECB purchases in 2015

ECB purchases will reduce the size of the tradable sovereign bond markets

MADRID | May 14, 2015 | BNP Paribas | Net issuance of sovereign bonds will exceed ECB purchases in May by c.EUR50bn. We believe this is why yields are going up. We also believe this is why they will come down again from June when ECB QE will again significantly outpace sovereign bond issuances (by c. EUR8bn in June and EUR90bn in July)
