US 10-year notes steady, seen supported on dips SINGAPORE: US 10-year Treasuries were little changed in Asia on Wednesday and were seen likely to be supported on dips, with the euro zone's sovereign debt crisis helping to bolster the safe haven appeal of US debt. Ten-year Treasury notes were little changed in price to yield 1.860 percent, little changed from late US trade on Tuesday and hovering near the lower end of its range since late December of between 1.836 percent to 2.056 percent. Although recent moves in dollar funding markets and equities point to an easing in risk aversion, uncertainty over the situation in Europe has supported demand for Treasuries and that seems likely to continue in the near term, said Tomohisa Fujiki, interest rate strategist for BNP Paribas Securities in Tokyo. "There has been a continuation of a situation in which buying tends to emerge when yields rise," Fujiki said. Market players are now focusing on the fate of negotiations ...

US bond yields creep up after China data TOKYO: US Treasuries were pressured, bolstering yields, as better-than-expected Chinese data in Asia trade on Tuesday gave equities markets a lift and pushed fears about the euro zone debt crisis out of the spotlight for now. The 10-year Treasury yield was at 1.88 percent, edging up from 1.87 percent in late North American trade on Friday. The US debt market was closed on Monday for a federal holiday honouring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The 30-year ...
JGBs tick down on profit-taking ahead of 30-year auction           TOKYO: Japanese government bond prices slipped on Tuesday on profit-taking after the 10-year yield hit a 14-month low the day before and as investors braced for a 700 billion yen auction of 30-year debt later in the day. The 10-year cash JGB yield rose 1.5 basis points to 0.950 percent, up from a 14-month low of 0.935 percent marked on Monday. "This seems like profit-taking. Investors are unwinding yesterday's safe-haven buying following the S&P downgrades of euro ...
China Development Bank 7-year bond yield at high end of forecast           SHANGHAI: China Development Bank auctioned 20 billion yuan ($3.17 billion) of seven-year fixed-rate bonds in the interbank market on Tuesday at a yield of 3.83 percent, traders said, at the high end of market expectations. Market forecasts had centred around 3.78 percent and ranged from 3.68 to 3.85 percent. The result was significantly above Tuesday's indicative secondary market yield of 3.7381 percent bid for seven-year financial bonds issued by policy banks. CDB also auctioned 10 billion ...
JGBs up on Europe ratings cuts; 10-year yield hits 14-month low        TOKYO: Japanese government bonds gained on Monday, with the 10-year yield falling to a 14-month low, on worries the mass downgrade of euro zone countries by Standard & Poor's could stymie Europe's efforts to contain its debt crisis. The 10-year JGB yield fell 1.0 basis point to 0.935 percent, its lowest level since November 2010, with many market players expecting yields to continue to decline gradually. "Investors are not overly long on JGBs now, as some ...
Debt re-balancing to boost bond market   DUBAI: Debt capital markets activity in the Middle East North Africa region should exceed last year's total amount as firms re-balance their borrowing away from loans towards the bond market, Morgan Stanley executives said on Sunday. Loan volumes in MENA slumped significantly in 2011, down 36.8 percent to $39 billion, and much has been made of the withdrawal of European banks from the Middle Eastern loan market and the impact this will have on volumes going ...
