Fixed and FX latest: Gilts grind up to fresh Liffe peak, as Dollar drifts

An almost uniform set of underwhelming US data and cautious comments from Fed’s Kaplan have underpinned core debt, with the 10 year UK benchmark garnering a bit more impetus to carve out a new intraday high at 123.40 (+46 ticks), while Bunds retested their earlier Eurex best of 163.35 that also constituted a marginal contract peak. Conversely, the DXY has slipped back under 97.000, albeit with the broad Usd still mixed vs rivals along the safe-haven/risk or high beta currency divide.
