China opens up its bond markets, though currency seen as key barrier

China's policymakers are about to actively attract foreign investment to the country's $3 trillion bond market, reportedly to help to shore up the struggling national currency. However, the currency appears to be a key barrier to the success of their ambitious plan.

Currently, foreigners own less than 2% of the Asian country’s $3.3 trillion in outstanding bonds and ascertain that getting their cash out of China as well as recent weakness of the closely monitored currency turned to be are obstacles to investment.

For the last two years Chinese bonds have demonstrated the highest yields in two years. Moreover, on the basis of 10-year sovereign debt, it appears to be the biggest interest rate gap with equivalent American Treasuries for eight months. It undoubtedly highlights the dilemma of a market, appealing on the one hand, but considered to carry too many risks on the other hand.
