UPDATE 1-CEE MARKETS-Hungary government bond yields rise to 10-year high

·3 min read

(Updates with Hungarian government bond yield moves, trader comment) By Anita Komuves BUDAPEST, Sept 9 (Reuters) - Hungarian government bond yields rose on Friday, with yields on the long end of the curve reaching their highest levels since 2012 as investors priced in increasing interbank market rates and worried about rising inflation. Yields on both end of the curve rose, with the yield on the benchmark 10-year bond rising to about 9.40%, the highest in 10 years, two fixed-income traders in Budapest said. "The central bank's new liquidity-tightening measures are bound to raise interbank rates, which caused yields to rise on the short end by about 100-120 basis points. This drove the long end higher as well," a fixed-income trader said. "I expect some profit-taking at this level and yields to go back to around 9% at the beginning of next week." The National Bank of Hungary announced new measures last month to tighten forint liquidity in the interbank market. The measures include a hike in banks' mandatory reserve ratio to 5% from 1%, central bank discount bill auctions and a long-term deposit instrument to reduce liquidity in the banking system. Markets were also pricing in higher inflation as data showed on Thursday that August inflation rose to an annual 15.6%, with further rises expected from next month, another trader said. Currencies in the CEE region were mostly stable after a highly anticipated meeting of European Union energy ministers earlier in the day. The ministers tasked Brussels with drafting proposals to cap the revenues of non-gas fuelled power generatorsand and asked the European Commission to propose other emergency temporary measures including a gas price cap, but held back from endorsing a price cap specifically for Russian gas. The forint gave up gains from earlier in the day and was trading at 397.15 per euro, still near three-week highs. The currency has been supported by a drop in gas prices in the past week, which eases the burden on import-dependent Hungary's current account balance and budget, traders and analysts said. Lower gas prices, "which has become the main driver of the region these days" support all CEE currencies that are now trading at their strongest since mid-August, ING wrote in a note. The Polish zloty edged down 0.12% to 4.7110 per euro while the Czech crown slid 0.2% to 24.5620.
