    Higher gear kicks in  

    IG new issuance saw $46.34bn price in the past week (ex-SSA), coming over the $40bn that had been expected. February ended with $150.9bn, well over the $100bn that surveys forecasted. For March, expectations are for around $130 to $150bn, sources say.  


    Week over week, IG corporate spreads narrowed 3bps to 125bps while high yield spreads narrowed 23bps to 405bps, according to the ICE BofA Masters indexes.


    For the coming week, around $35bn is anticipated and already more than a dozen issuers on deck for today ahead of Powell’s semiannual testimony to Congress tomorrow and Wednesday.
