US 10-year dip in Asia pending euro talks  SINGAPORE: US 10-year Treasuries inched lower in Asia on Thursday, but their losses were limited ahead of a European summit and right before the end of first-half 2012. Ten-year Treasury notes dipped 3/32 in price to yield 1.631 percent, up around 1 basis point from late US trade on Wednesday. The 10-year yield has been in a range of roughly 1.55 percent to 1.73 percent in the past three weeks. Moves in Treasuries over the past few days have been subdued ahead of a summit of European leaders on Thursday and Friday and with the 2012's first half drawing to a close, said Tomohisa Fujiki, interest rate strategist for BNP Paribas Securities in Tokyo. Looking ahead, there might be some scope for safe haven Treasuries to be bought and for the 10-year yield to decline from current levels, since the European Union summit may not do much to stabilise markets that have been ...

JGBs mostly down, but duration extension supports superlongs  TOKYO; Most Japanese government bonds edged down on Thursday, as bullish US data stoked investor appetite for riskier assets, though month-end buying bolstered the superlong tenor. Funds often buy longer-term debt at the end of a month to extend the duration of their portfolios. That buying supported longer durations even as rallying equities took away some of the appeal of safe-haven fixed income assets. "The stock market's doing relatively well, so you have a bit of selling ...
US bonds steady on Europe doubts  LONDON: US bond prices stabilised in European trade on Wednesday, supported by investor doubts this week's European Union summit will deliver decisive measures to contain the region's debt crisis. German Chancellor Angela Merkel dashed any hopes of a quick move towards common euro zone bond issuance - favoured by France, Italy and Spain - after she was quoted as saying Europe would not share total debt liability in her lifetime. "I still want to be a buyer ...
Bond prices supported on Europe scepticism  TOKYO: US Treasuries were supported in Asia on Wednesday as investors expect safe-haven demand to remain strong as they see little immediate progress coming from Europe's efforts to contain its debt crisis. The yield on 10-year US notes stood at 1.625 percent , little changed from late US levels. Treasuries yields ticked up slightly on Monday as market players sought price concessions for auctions this week. The two-year notes yield rose about 1.0 basis point to 0.311 ...
JGBs rise on ongoing concerns about Europe debt  TOKYO; Japanese government bonds rose on Wednesday, getting a safe-haven lift in the waning days of the April-June quarter from ongoing fears about Europe's debt woes ahead of a meeting of regional leaders. Investors remained sceptical that a two-day summit of European Union leaders beginning on Thursday would result in any solid progress towards resolving that region's debt crisis. JGB investors have only a few days left to make quarter-end adjustments to their portfolios. Some strategists expect the ...
US debt prices ease amid new supply  NEW YORK: US Treasuries prices slipped on Tuesday as investors pushed for price concessions in auctions of new debt this week, although safe-haven flows limited the session's losses. Fresh headlines from Europe, this time focused on Cyprus and Spain, maintained the latest safety bid. The latest ripple to hit market shores was the European Central Bank's announcement that Cyprus sovereign bonds would no longer be eligible collateral for ECB refinancing operations. Cyprus has become the fifth euro-zone ...
Private fund buys 5pc of Italian bank UniCredit  MILAN: Private equity fund Pamplona has bought 5 percent of Italy's biggest bank, UniCredit, becoming its second-largest shareholder, in a vote of confidence on the bank's future in the face of a deepening euro zone crisis.

The stake was bought by Pamplona Global Financial Institutions ...
