Upcoming auctions for Treasury bills may clear above the 32% rate as investors demand a higher risk premium.
Many analysts believe T-bill yields are likely to continue on their upward trajectory as investors re-price their assets due to higher inflation.
Inflation shot up to 33.9% in August 2022, fueled by non-food inflation, which went up by 33.36% (+2.3%).
According to the Weekly Fixed Income Update by Databank Research, domestic investors continue to hold short-term views on the bonds market amidst heightened inflation, focusing on the 2022- 2025 tenors.
The last bond offering sold at 29.50% in July 2022.
