Bond Market Commentary : December 2021

Domestic Dominance


After tapering started in November 2021, the Fed continued with another move which is expedite tapering by reducing the monthly net asset purchase pace from previously USD 15 billion to USD 30 billion which end up completely in March. At the same time, the FOMC dots show the sign of a higher chance rate hike 3 times in 2022 and 2023. That is a good signal for the global capital market where investors can expect the Fed action through the monetary policy before the economy gets overheating as reflected in the current steady economic improvement. Thus, the benchmark US 10-year Treasury yield is crawling up to 1.55%, including INDOGB 10-year yield at 6.38%. The spread between the two benchmark yields has widened to around 500 basis points (bps) that were previously below 450 bps. Rupiah is still relatively stable with the tailwind of the strong commodity export.

In our view, huge liquidity will still carry on to 2022 where the loan growth will increase and BI can use SKB III intensively in 2022. Hence, we still can expect domestic buyers of government bonds in 2022. Meanwhile, foreign ownership is getting lower reaching 19.8% of the total government bond. We are seeing foreign investors have plenty of choices to hunt higher EM bond nominal yields other than the Indonesian government bond nominal yield. We set a new target of benchmark INDOGB 10-years yield at range 6.25%-6.75% considering recent global and domestic development. Therefore, we lower the duration of our funds in order to lower the risk of possible policy changes.
