Oct. 14 (Bloomberg) -- The London International Financial Futures & Options Exchange will reinstate the March 2012 delivery month of the long gilt futures contract with a 4 percent notional coupon, it said in a statement late yesterday.
The notional coupon was revised down from 6 percent after the Bank of England expanded its bond-purchase program last week, prompting the Oct. 7 suspension of the March 2012 and June 2012 delivery months on the contract.
No changes will be made to the December 2011 contract, the statement said.
