Moody's is expected to complete its review of 15 of the largest global banks in the coming days or weeks, with Morgan Stanley, Citigroup and Bank of America all on review for possible downgrades of their top short-term credit ratings at their bank operating company levels. Goldman Sachs is also under review to lose its top short-term ratings at its holding company but is not expected to lose them at the operating company level. Concerns over the possible effect of the bank downgrades has helped send the cost of financing securities in the repurchase agreement market higher as lenders seek out alternative exposures to the banks ...

JGBs rise on euro zone debt fears; firm 5-year sale expected  TOKYO: Japanese government bond prices rose on Tuesday, catching a wave of safe haven demand as confidence faded that the weekend's Spanish bank bailout would be a panacea for euro zone debt woes. The gains were expected to support demand at the Ministry of Finance's 5-year JGB auction, despite the low coupon set at 0.2 percent.
