Fixed Income: 91-Day T-Bill closes Lower Money Markets: The CBK remained relevant in the market to mop up Kes.8Bn in excess liquidity through repos and TADs with the interbank rate edging to 8.365% from yesterdays close of 8.177%. Primary Markets: Further pressure was noted on the primary auction yields with the 91-Day T-Bill dropped 168.4 bps to 8.583%. The offer was Kes.4Bn but attracted bids worth Kes.9.68Bn representing a bid to cover ratio of 2.42. The regulator accepted bids worth Kes.4.54Bn. Secondary Markets: Improved activity in the fixed income market as turnover bounced back up 72% to Kes.6Bn driven by IFB Bonds that transacted Kes.3.1Bn; 52% of total turnover.

Currency: CBK Props Up KES Performance: The KES saw support from foreign inflows to the bond market as well as improved regulator participation in the market. The national currency maintained its previous performances holding steady against majority of the currency pairs in Table 8. The shilling slipped 0.32% in the EURKES as investors reacted to a hint of a third round of quantitative easing in the US. A further marginal slip of 0.04% in the GBPKES pair was noted but KES edged up 0.06% in the USDKES pair. Against its African counter the shilling held steady shifting +0.92% in the KESUGX pair and +0.41% in the KESTZS pair but shedding 0.45% vs. ZAR. This performance will carry on in tomorrows session as well.
