JGBs sag on hedge selling ahead of 5-year bond auction              TOKYO: Japanese government bond prices sagged slightly on Thursday as traders sold the futures to hedge against the five-year bond auction later in the day. March 10-year JGB futures, which will expire on Friday, fell 0.02 point to 142.71, while the June contract fell 0.09 point to 142.36. Volumes of the two contracts are almost the same, with traders expecting a shift in the benchmark contract as soon as Thursday. The Finance Ministry set a 0.3 percent coupon on its 2.5 trillion yen five-year bond offering as expected. The current five-year cash bonds last traded flat at 0.285 percent, a tad above a 16-month low of 0.280 percent touched on Wednesday, although the new issue, with maturity three months after the current issue, is expected to yield around 0.3 percent. Market players say the latest offer should attract strong demand due to expectations that the BOJ will keep easy policy and may ...

US bonds steady as investors await Greece              TOKYO: Treasuries were steady in Asia on Wednesday, as investors awaited progress on the latest steps toward Greece's bailout deal and digested the latest signals that global growth could slow. Greece's private creditors must decide by Thursday evening whether to participate in a bond swap the country needs to conduct in order to secure the funds required to avoid a chaotic default and meet redemptions on March 20. Some domestic pension funds and foreign investors have ...
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 ...
Bund futures hit fresh record highs        LONDON:  German Bund futures hit fresh record highs on Tuesday, while Italian and Spanish government bond yields rose on growing concerns over a Greek debt swap deal and Spain's budget performance.

Bonds ease amid optimism over US outlook        NEW YORK: US Treasury debt prices eased on Monday as recent evidence the US economic recovery is picking up steam undermined the safe-haven value of government debt. Losses were limited however and yields remained well within recent ranges as poor euro zone data and concerns about Greece's debt swap, along with China cutting its growth target, maintained some demand for lower-risk assets. 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. Italian and Spanish government bonds came under pressure as services activity data in the euro zone led to further profit-taking in assets which many in the market had said were looking expensive. Peripheral bonds rallied after the European Central Bank injected a second ...
