LONDON: US Treasury prices fell in Europe on Tuesday as a short-term bills auction in Madrid went better than expected, cooling some of the worries that Spanish budget problems could escalate into a new round of euro zone financial stress. Spain sold a more-than-planned 3.2 billion euros ($4.2 billion) of 12- and 18-month bills, drawing good demand from domestic banks, but yields rose sharply as expected. The result triggered some profit-taking from investors that have sold Spanish debt and other assets perceived as relatively risky in recent days, while knocking German Bunds off their highs and sending US debt prices lower. T-note futures were last down 5/32 on the day at 131.16/32, while cash 10-year yields were 1.4 basis points higher at 1.9964 percent. "The focus has been on Spanish supply, it went very well ... it's been a 'risk on' event," Bank of Montreal trader Craig Collins said. "But the 2 percent level ...

TOKYO: US Treasuries firmed in Asia on Monday, with the benchmark yield edging further away from 2 percent as investors' appetite for risk faded on new worries about the European debt crisis.

The US Federal Reserve will meet on April 24-25, ...
TOKYO: Japanese government bond prices edged up on Monday, with the 30-year yield touching an eight-week low as renewed fears about the European debt crisis and expectations of future Bank of Japan easing steps added to the appeal of fixed-income assets.
