Mnemonic Change: Lebanon - Sovereign yields
Thursday, 13 Jun 2019 03:47 ET
By Victoria Donu
Summary
June 2019 -- For the primary market yield and return on five tenors of Treasury bill for Lebanon, we have standardized the mnemonics and metadata (five monthly series impacted).
Detail

1. We have renamed the five existing series (tenors of three months to three years) for international consistency across Data Buffet. For backwards compatibility with legacy baskets, we have preserved the prior mnemonics as aliases. The changes are (old » new):

  • IR%TB3MPUM.ILBN  » IR%GB3MYPUM.ILBN = 3 months, implicit yield
  • IR%TB6MPUM.ILBN  » IR%GB6MYPUM.ILBN = 6 months
  • IR%TB12MPUM.ILBN » IR%GB1YYPUM.ILBN = 1 year
  • IR%TB2YPUM.ILBN  » IR%GB2YRPUM.ILBN = 2 years, return
  • IR%TB3YPUM.ILBN  » IR%GB3YRPUM.ILBN = 3 years

2. We have refurbished the description metadata for completeness and consistency.

  • Tenor as described by source, with standardized tenor in brackets
  • Primary market
  • Unit-descriptor, viz., interest rates are expressed per annum

For example:

  • Before: Interest Rates: Return on 3 years Treasury Bills, (%, NSA)
  • After: Interest rates: Treasury bill - 36 months [3 years] - Return - Primary market, (% p.a., NSA)
