Australian bond futures prices are mixed amid expectations the Reserve Bank will move to a neutral bias this week.
Australian bond prices initially followed US prices higher over the weekend amid concerns over emerging markets, St George senior economist Jo Horton said.
"US government bonds rose (yields fell) as emerging market volatility and stockmarket losses boosted safe haven demand for US government debt," she said.
"Australian three-year government bond yields (implied by futures) initially fell, but fully rebounded later on expectations the RBA may move from an easing bias to a neutral bias this week."
The RBA meets for the first time this year on Tuesday and is widely expected to leave the cash rate on hold at 2.5 per cent.
