Spanish yields up on bailout doubts; Bunds sell off  LONDON: Spanish government bond yields rose to near euro-era highs on Tuesday as a bailout for the country's banks did little to soothe concerns over its long-term ability to access markets. Italian bond yields also rose before an auction on Thursday, when the Treasury may have to pay dear to sell debt, with Sunday's make-or-break Greek election adding to volatility. Investors took profit on German Bund futures after a rally the previous day but the sell-off was expected to be short-lived. They were seen taking refuge in the Bund before a vote that will be decisive for Greece's membership of the euro. "There was a big seller, an insurance fund, of long-end Bunds and they did it on screens. They hit three different dealers at the same time which sent us shooting down," a trader said. "But I don't expect this to last now that (Dutch) supply is out of the way. I think ...

Steady Bunds underpinned by Greek vote, Spain  LONDON: German Bunds were steady on Tuesday and were likely to remain underpinned by a bailout for Spanish banks that failed to ease concerns about the country's long-term access to markets, and before make-or-break Greek elections over the weekend. Against that backdrop, investors are expected to snap up 10-year and 50-year Austrian bonds and Dutch paper maturing in 2033 at auctions this session, as they seek relatively safe alternatives to lower-yielding German bonds. "We think the market ...

Italian 10-year bond yields rise back above 6pc  PARIS: The rate of return demanded by investors for Italian 10-year bonds briefly soared above six percent Monday on the secondary market as concerns mounted about eurozone debt despite a Spanish bank rescue. Shortly before 1700 GMT the yield on benchmark Italian 10-year bonds rose to 6.004 percent from 5.758 percent at Friday's close, breaking the six percent barrier considered to be a level unsustainable in the medium term, for the first time since early June. The ...

India bond yields edge down; RBI says to buy debt  MUMBAI: Indian federal bond yields fell on Monday after the central bank said it would purchase bonds via open market operations, helping relieve some of the liquidity worries as companies gear up to pay taxes. The OMOs from the Reserve Bank of India would resume bond purchases after a two-week absence, helping offset the impact of expected outflows as corporates start paying taxes ahead of the June 15 deadline. Also supporting bond prices are expectations the RBI ...

Spain bond rally reverses as bailout doubts set in  LONDON: Spanish government bond yields turned flat on the day, reversing an earlier fall, as relief after the country secured a banking bailout proved to be short-lived. Spanish 10-year yields rose to 6.26 percent, up 1.4 basis points on the day having earlier fallen to as low as 6.04 percent. Markets initially reacted positively to the news that Spain had agreed a bailout of up to 100 billion euros for its stricken banks. However, that senitment gave ...

Bunds dip as Spain aid deal weighs on safe havens  LONDON: German Bund futures fell while Italian debt rallied on Monday after a weekend deal to rescue Spain's banks cooled demand for safe havens to the benefit of riskier assets. Euro zone finance ministers agreed over the weekend to lend Spain up to 100 billion euros ($125 billion) for its bank rescue fund, allaying some immediate fears of the country's fiscal collapse. The news lifted Italian bond futures more than a full point in early trade, with ...

Spanish auction takes shine off safer euro zone debt  LONDON: French, Austrian and Belgian government bonds came under pressure on Thursday as a strong Spanish auction improved sentiment towards riskier assets. Ten-year French government bond yields rose 18 basis points to 2.59 percent, Belgian yields jumped 17 bps to 3.15 percent, and Austrian yields surged 17 bps to 2.27 percent. "You're seeing a relief rally across risk assets and peripherals are benefiting from that at the expense of the core and semi core," said Nick Stamenkovic, ...
