The BSP raises both its overnight borrowing rate and special deposit account rates (SDA) by 25 basis points to 4.0pct and 2.5pct, respectively.

Yields in bonds 10 years and below moved up ahead of BSP's policy decisions in the afternoon. Bulk of the Php 13.6-billion worth that dealt today occurred in these tenors, where bids higher by 1.5 to as much as 5 basis points were given. In contrast, there was some interest in the long-dated jumbo FXTN 20-17 (17 years left) and RTB 25-01 (23 years), which dipped by 2.5 basis points. Some tried to push rates further up when the results were announced, but levels ultimately held after market hours.
