Greek 10-year bonds yield less than 30-year debt, first time since Nov. 2013 LONDON: Yields on 10-year Greek bonds yielded less than 30-year paper for the first time since late 2013 on Thursday, as investors' fears ebb that they might not get all their money back. An improved outlook on Greece's economy and an easing euro zone debt crisis has driven Greek yields to their lowest since the country's debt was restructured in March 2012. "In general, the story around Greece is clearly improving. There's indications of momentum within the economy. The primary surplus has come through earlier than anticipated," said Mark Wall, chief euro area economist at Deutsche Bank. "You've had the signals from the EU that they'd be willing to sit down and talk about debt relief, albeit later in the summer. So there is a positive backdrop that continues to significantly influence Greek asset markets." Greek 10-year yields slid 20 basis points to 6.66 percent on Thursday while 30-year yields ...

Ukraine bonds fall as restructuring mooted; investors weigh options LONDON: Ukraine's short-dated dollar bonds plunged by as much as 6 cents on Wednesday after the country's finance minister said it may start talks with creditors on restructuring debt, though Western aid pledges helped prices to recover. Ukrainian bond prices have been under pressure for weeks despite prospects of a multi-billion dollar International Monetary Fund bailout, as the state of the country's economy and the sheer weight of debt repayments made a restructuring likely. Credit ...
Bunds fall before German debt sale; ECB meeting looms LONDON: Bunds slipped on Wednesday before a sale of German five-year debt that some market participants see drawing tepid demand after a sharp rally over the past month. The sale of up to 4 billion euros of five-year paper follows a 30-year German bond auction last week which was shunned by investors due to its low potential returns, and 10-year debt sale the week before met similarly poor appetite. Demand may also be sapped by ...
