"It's only a matter of time before periphery goes wrong again." The German Bund future fell 29 ticks to 139.57. European stock ...

ECB bond buying offsets S&P downgrade pressure           LONDON: Italian and Spanish bond yields were stable on Monday, with traders citing ECB bond purchases offsetting pressure triggered by a Standard & Poor's euro zone downgrade salvo and rising risk of an unruly Greek default.
