The global bond rally has seen the yield on Australian 10-year bonds fall to a record low of 1.73 per cent, to the same level as New Zealand’s 10-year bonds. However, NZ currently has a higher official interest rate at 1.75 per cent, although futures traders have priced in two rate cuts in Australia by August 2020, which would reduce the cash rate to one per cent. Annette Beacher of TD Securities has not ruled out a further fall in bond yields.
