Fixed Income Reports: Everything you always wanted to know about CNB QE

4/2/2020 8:17 AM

The CNB has signalled the possibility of the first government bond purchase programme as part of the central bank’s toolkit to maintain liquidity in the financial system. We assume that the reason for triggering CZGB purchases would be a sudden sell-off by foreign investors caused by global market stress or a further widening of the public finance amid shallow capacity of the CZGB market. Quantitative easing would thus lead to restructuring of CZGBs holders, a bull flattening of the yield curve and a weaker CZK in the medium term. However, the form that the purchases would take and the legislative framework remain uncertain. At the same time, the need to support liquidity and the CZGB market has eased considerably for now, following successful auctions by the MinFin over the last week.
