The level was within a six-basis point trading range for the note this week and close to where it stood on Wednesday before Fed leaders suggested hike rates could be years away. Top Fed officials on Friday began fleshing out how they would apply their new approach of keeping interest rates near zero until inflation has hit the Fed's 2% target and is on track "to moderately exceed" it "for some time." The U.S. current account deficit soared to its highest level in nearly 12 years in the second quarter as the COVID-19 pandemic weighed on the exports of goods and services, the Commerce Department said on Friday.

Bond Market Ahead:
The market will move ahead in the tight band as second borrowing plan will be released in the fourth week of this month. Due to contraction in the GDP by 23.9% and lower collections of the tax numbers may lead for borrowing more from the market to the tune of atleast Rs.2 lakh crore. The RBI trying to hold the benchmark around 6% mark by doing Special OMOs and now announced OMO Purchase of three long dated papers to the tune of Rs.10000 crore on September 24, 2020. The market is not convinced with the size of the OMO Purchase as traders want the size to be larger. The RBI will conduct a switch, a window through which it will buy back shorter-duration bonds worth Rs.24000 crore selling equivalent long term papers. This move is aim at rationalizing future maturities of the bonds. The RBI need to do more OMO purchases regularly to keep the momentum going on the street. The street is expecting OMO amount to be around 1.5 to 2 lakh crore in the second half of the FY 2020- 2021
