In the Chinese property sector, Country Garden’s US$250m 4.75% 5NC3s rose half a point to 99.950/100.175.

Longfor’s 4.5% 2028s, which together with a 5.25-year garnered US$6bn in orders, was nearly half a point higher at 100.0/100.25, according to Tradeweb. Jiayuan International’s 364-day notes were bid at a yield of 7.5%, well inside final pricing of 8.25%.
