Local Government debt pushes China bond gauge higher 
The ATF China Bond 50 Index rose 0.02% to 107.97.

(ATF) Chinese bonds extended their advance Tuesday with the ATF China Bond 50 Index climbing 0.02% to 107.97.

The negative price of the front month oil futures has left no marks on the ATF ALLINDEX index family. None of the constituents showed any sign that they have been affected by the glut of crude oil, despite that fact that China is one of the biggest oil importers globally. 

The ATF ALLINDEX Local Governments index showed today the biggest increase, at 0.04% to 107.23.

The ATF ALLINDEX Financial, Corporate and Enterprise gauges extended their advances each by 0.03% ending at 107.22, 99.64 and 103.43, respectively.
