Sri lanka News – Yields in Sri Lanka Treasury bonds and bills remained unchanged in dull trade while the investors awaited for directions from November 14 budget, while the guidance peg for interbank transactions determined by the central bank was steady on Tuesday, dealers said on Tuesday.

A bond maturing on 15.01.2028 ended at 33.10/50 percent on Tuesday, unchanged from the Friday’s close. The markets were closed on Monday for a national holiday.

Dealers said no other bonds were quoted for the day.

Yield in three-month T-bill closed at 32.30/3.30 percent, unchanged from the previous close.

The Central Bank’s guidance peg for interbank transactions remained unchanged at 363.50 rupees against the US dollar.

Commercial banks offered dollars for telegraphic transfers between 372.00 and 3722.10 for small transactions, data showed.

Buying rates are between 362.00 – 362.10 rupees.

Analysts say the proposed tax rates if passed by the parliament could help reduce market interest rates with the government reducing the borrowings.  (Colombo/Nov08/2022)
