US: Spreads on 10-year U.S. interest rate swaps over Treasuries hit their widest in more than six months due in part to worries about the potential fallout of Chinese property group Evergrande’s financial troubles to the global economy.
In another sign of concern brewing in money markets, analysts cited three-month Libor, which rose to 12.5 basis points, a four-week peak, according to Refinitiv data, which may reflect some stress in the banking system.
Evergrande has been scrambling to raise funds to pay its many lenders, suppliers and investors. Regulators have warned that it’s $305 billion in liabilities could spark broader risks to China’s financial system if its debts are not stabilized.
Spreads of interest rate swaps are typically viewed as indicators of market risk, analysts said. A higher spread suggests market participants are willing to swap their risk exposures, suggesting overall risk aversion.
The spread on 10-year U.S. swaps over benchmark Treasuries rose to 5.25 basis points, from 4 basis points late on Friday. The spread was 3.25 basis points late Monday.
Eurozone: Australia Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Tuesday said any trade talks with the European Union will be worked through in “the weeks and months ahead” as he deals with the fallout of the decision to cancel a $40 billion submarine deal with France.
“It’s not an easy thing to do, to get an agreement with the European Union on trade, I think everyone understands that,” Morrison told reporters in New York, after reaching the United States for a meeting of the leaders of the Quad group.
Australia last week cancelled its order of a fleet of conventional submarines from France and said it would instead build at least eight nuclear-powered submarines with U.S. and British technology, prompting a recall by France of its envoys in the U.S. and Australia.
