The Uruguay Risk Index of the Electronic Stock Market went from 0.89% to 0.85% per year during the month of February.
The last monthly bulletin of February of the Electronic Stock Exchange of Uruguay (Bevsa) reported that the Uruguay Risk Index (IRUBEVSA) which measures the Uruguayan debt yield spread in dollars with respect to the debt of the United States (US Treasuries) fell 4 basis points in February from 0.89% per year to 0.85% per year.
In this way, the IRUBEVSA remains at low levels and resumes the downward path registered since October of last year, after a correction of 17 basic points was registered in January, starting from the 0.72% annual rate with which the period began. anus.
The current drop interrupted the rise in January and positioned itself as the third lowest monthly closing of the historical series, far from the levels of last year. This behavior was due to larger upward movements by the UST with respect to the Uruguayan debt yield curve in dollars (cud), except for nodes at 10 and 15 years.
The reduction in the spread can be explained by an upward shift in the UST curve —United States Treasury— in all its intertemporal structure, above the rise of all Uruguayan sovereign securities, which are reflected in the Yield index of Uruguay Global Bonds in dollars (ITBGL) which went from 458 basis points to 495 basis points in the end-to-end monthly comparison at the end of February.
