Bunds slip on cautious hope over Greek talks LONDON: Bund futures fell to near 1-1/2 week lows on Friday, as signs Greece could be nearing a vital deal with its private bondholders needed to avoid a messy default sapped demand for debt seen as a safe-haven. Greece is running out of time as it needs to seal an agreement with its private creditors in coming days to pave the way for a fresh injection of international aid before 14.5 billion euros of bond redemptions fall due on March 20. Investors were cautious as they looked for firm news out of Greece, with a rally in European equities running out of steam and limiting further falls in Bunds. "There are encouraging signs the Greek PSI (private sector involvement) deal may be achieved soon, possibly even today and that's likely to keep bunds on the defensive," said Nick Stamenkovic, a rate strategist at RIA Capital Markets. "It will cause some relief in the markets ...

Long-dated JGBs slip on post-auction disappointment, stock gains TOKYO: Long-dated Japanese government bonds slipped on Wednesday as brokers found only limited investor demand for 30-year debt auctioned the previous day, and Japanese share prices jumped unexpectedly. Still, shorter maturities held firm, steepening the yield curve, as many market players expect brisk demand at a 2.5 trillion yen five-year JGB auction on Thursday. Selling started in so-called super long bonds, such as 20- and 30-year bonds after brokerage firms struggled to find buyers for 700 billion ...
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.
