RBI micromanaging bond yields will hurt long term investors

linkedIn Logo twitter logo

RBI announced an operation twist for Rs 200 billion as soon as it saw the market bidding at higher yields in the auction of the new 10 year benchmark bond, the 5.85% 2030 bond. The bond yield cut off was at 5.90%, 5bps higher than the last week cut off at 5.85%. Operation twist is where the RBI sells short term bonds and purchases longer term bonds, which helps keep down the 10 year benchmark bond yield.
