Swaps predict losses for bonds in pesos: Chile Fixed Income

(Bloomberg) – The decline in spreads between Chile’s interest rate swaps and government bonds has traders and analysts betting on more losses for peso bonds. Swap spreads in Chile are often negative due to to the different investor bases for swaps and bonds. Earlier this month, the peso-denominated BTP 2030 rate fell below the 10-year peso-chamber interest rate swap rate. The swap spread has averaged around -29 basis points since November 2018, when the 2030 BTP was issued, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The most recent spread was just -5 basis points. The swap rate generally reacts faster to movements in US Treasury yields than local BTP rates. The yield on US 10-year bonds rose more than 1% this month for the first time since March last year amid expectations that a victory by Democrats in the Congressional and White House elections would bring more fiscal aid. ” The spreads between the two curves will tend to converge in line with historical averages, but steeper, ”said Mario Castro, fixed income strategist for Latin America at BBVA in New York. In Chile, expectations of an economic recovery as the government implements its vaccination program and higher copper prices will also lead to lower demand for nominal notes and higher yields, he said. Longer-term nominal rates will likely increase. in the coming weeks, due to the adjustment of portfolios and given that the local swap curve has been pushed up by rates in dollars, said Sebastián Ide, manager of the trading area at Banco de Chile. Investors could trim exposure to fixed income as they reposition into equities. Chile’s economic recovery is expected to be stronger than many regional peers, in line with the government’s vaccination program. About 12,000 healthcare workers have already received the vaccine, while an additional 180,000 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech will arrive this month, plus 680,000 in February, President Sebastián Piñera said on Jan. 14, despite the second wave of infections due to Covid-19 is gaining traction, both the local and global markets are likely to pay more attention to advances in the vaccination process, said Humberto Mora, investment strategist at Fynsa.
