JGBs gain, 5-year yield falls to 16-month low              TOKYO: Japanese government bonds gained on Wednesday, sending the 5-year yield to a 16-month low, as fears about the progress of Greece's credit bailout and slowing global growth added to the safe-haven appeal of fixed-income assets. The 5-year yield skidded one basis point to 0.285 percent, though the yield is seen unlikely to fall much further as some investors sell ahead of the finance ministry's auction of 2.5 trillion yen ($30.97 billion) of 5-year notes on Thursday.

Benchmark 10-year Treasury notes were trading 3/32 lower in price to yield 1.99 percent, up ...
Bund hits new high as growth, Greek fears underpin        LONDON: German Bund futures hit a new record high on Monday as data fuelled concerns over the region's growth prospects while risks surrounding Greece's huge debt restructuring also underpinned demand for safe-haven debt.
