Bunds ease before 10-year auction, Spain in focus  LONDON: German bond futures fell on Wednesday ahead of a 10-year bond auction, extending a steep selloff seen in the previous session, but the room for further falls was limited with markets still fixated on Spain's rising bond yields. The pressure remains on Spain after a 100 billion euro bank rescue plan sparked wider concerns over whether Spanish government bonds would be subordinated by the new debt, and whether Madrid could continue borrowing at affordable rates. Bund futures stood at 142.03, 45 ticks lower versus the previous session's market settlement, but around levels seen in after hours trading, pointing to some stabilisation in prices after Tuesday's sharp fall. Some market participants cited Tuesday's fall in Bund futures as evidence that the rising cost of shoring up the euro zone was having a negative impact on Germany's creditworthiness. However, 10-year German bond yields remain at an extremely low 1.47 percent despite Tuesday's rise, and a ...

Emirates to repay $550mn Islamic bond in full DUBAI: Dubai's Emirates, the fast-expanding Gulf airline, will repay in full a $550 million Islamic bond maturing later in June, a senior executive told local newspaper Gulf News. The sukuk that matures on June 16, will not be refinanced, Emirates' President Tim Clark said in a interview with the Dubai-based paper in Beijing. "No, we are not refinancing the $550 million (bond). We are just about to repay the sukuk," he was quoted by the paper. Clark added ...

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 ...

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 ...
