A mixed session on Wall Street and spike in 10-year U.S. Treasury yields overnight kept markets on edge, and Asian bond yields remained close to multi-month highs scaled recently on expectations of higher inflation and economic growth. While Fed policymakers are expected to paint a rosy picture for U.S. economy in 2021, investors have been worrying that this may cause a potential increase in interest rates sooner than earlier expected, or that asset purchases might taper off. "I don't think there'll be a pushback against higher yields. We could see a risk that the dot-plot for 2023 will show a hike, but I think Chair Jerome Powell is going to downplay the significance of the dot-plot," said Sim Moh Siong, FX Strategist at Bank of Singapore. "I think the market has more or less priced-in the likelihood that they could show a dot-plot of one hike. If it remains unchanged for 2023, it will send a very dovish signal." Indonesia's rupiah and benchmark share index fell most in the region, with both down 0.4%, ahead of its own central bank meeting on Thursday, with rates expected to be held at record lows. The rupiah has weakened nearly 4% since its last peak on Feb. 16, and since then, benchmark 10-year government bond yields have spiked about 49.5 basis points to 6.756%. Worries of capital outflows in emerging markets have been rife due to the rising U.S. yields, prompting most Asian central banks to reaffirm support for bond markets and spell out their level of tolerance towards potential spikes in inflation. Analysts at OCBC said they do not expect Asian central banks to rush to hike rates ahead of the Fed, saying the markets' near-term rate hike pricings seemed aggressive as U.S. rates would likely stay unchanged till end-2022 at least. Singapore's Straits' Times index slipped marginally, shielded from broader losses by strong February adjusted non-oil exports data, which recorded a 8.2% rise versus the preceding month and overshot expectations. Philippines shares climbed about 0.5%, bouncing back after a sharp drop on Monday when news of a virus spike and fresh restrictions battered the market. Metropolitan Bank and Trust gained over 3%, while Aboitiz Equity Ventures added 2.8%.
