CNBC-TV18’s Latha Venkatesh spoke to Sajjid Chinoy, Chief India Economist at JPMorgan, and Abhishek Upadhyay, Senior Economist at ICICI Securities Primary Dealership, to discuss where the 10-year yields will go from here and if they will be high enough to slow down growth.
The 10-year bond yield is likely to move close to 7.50 percent, said Abhishek Upadhyay, Senior Economist at ICICI Securities Primary Dealership. Upadhyay's comment came after yield on the 10-year benchmark paper went up to 7.18 percent.
“Swap market was pricing in a series of rate hikes over the next two years, and to infer how much bond market was pricing, is difficult. Our sense is the 10-year yield can go to closer to 7.50 percent; the new trading rain may be between 7.25 percent and 7.50 percent in the current quarter,," said Upadhyay in an interview with CNBC-TV18.
According to Sajjid Chinoy, Chief India Economist at JPMorgan, "125 basis point hike per meeting over the next four to six meetings is probably what the doctors call for".
