Paid dollar bonds in pesos: Argentina BUENOS AIRES: Argentina's Chaco province made a dollar-denominated bond interest payment in local pesos last week due to the country's policy of limiting access to greenbacks, the province said over the weekend.   The payment of about $260,000 in pesos rather than US dollars surprised the local capital markets, and may set a precedent for other borrowers in the South American country to pay dollar-denominated debt in local currency.   "Compliance in a timely manner of the obligation was carried out in accordance with existing foreign exchange regulations established by the Central Bank of Argentina," said the northern province.   The bank has cracked down on access to dollars this year in a bid to halt capital flight as the local currency depreciates against the dollar.   The Chaco dollar-denominated bonds were issued in 2006 and come due in 2015 and 2023.   Argentina is a major world grains supplier and rising soy, corn and wheat prices have helped it ...

US 10 year notes supported by weak China data  SINGAPORE: US 10-year Treasuries pushed higher on Wednesday after a survey showed that China's services sector weakened sharply last month, reinforcing investor concerns about global economic growth.   Ten-year notes rose 5/32 in price to yield roughly 1.603 percent, down 2 basis points from late US trade on Tuesday.   China's official purchasing managers' index for the services sector fell to 53.7 in September, the lowest point since November 2010, according to the latest survey from the National Bureau ...
US 10-year notes edge higher as equities falter  SINGAPORE: US 10-year Treasuries rose and the 10-year yield hovered near a three-week low in Asia on Monday, as weakness in equities helped support demand for safe haven debt, with moves exaggerated by thin volumes.   Ten-year Treasuries rose around 4/32 in price to yield 1.618 percent in Asia, down roughly 2 basis points from late US trade on Friday and not far from Friday's trough of 1.599 percent, the 10-year yield's lowest level since Sept. 7.   A ...
US 10-year notes firmer in Asia but gains limited  SINGAPORE: US 10-year Treasuries rose in Asia on Friday but their gains were limited after Spain announced a tough 2013 budget that may pave the way for central bank action to help ease the euro zone's debt crisis.   Ten-year notes rose around 2/32 in price to yield 1.647 percent, down roughly 1 basis point from late US trade.   Ten-year Treasuries had retreated on Thursday after Spain announced a budget for 2013 based mostly on spending cuts, a ...
Bond yields near 3-week low on euro zone woes  TOKYO: US Treasuries were firm in Asia on Thursday, with the benchmark 10-year yield stuck near its lowest level in nearly three weeks, supported by resurgent worries over the euro zone's debt crisis and demand for mortgage bonds.   The yield on 10-year notes stood at 1.625 percent, near Wednesday's low of 1.610 percent, its lowest since Sept 7, having fallen almost 30 basis points from a four-month peak hit earlier this month.   The rally was driven in ...
Bonds extend winning streak on Spain jitters NEW YORK: US government debt prices rose on Wednesday for an eighth straight session on worries Spain's reluctance to ask for a full-blown bailout would prolong Europe's debt crisis. The Treasuries market, as measured by the benchmark 10-year note, was on track to match its longest winning streak since late November to early December 2008, according to Reuters data. Longer-dated US yields touched their lowest levels in more than two weeks since they spiked earlier this month ...
Growth concerns boost bid for Treasuries NEW YORK: Concerns about growth highlighted by the fifth straight monthly drop in German business sentiment weakened equities and the euro and boosted safe-haven US Treasuries on Monday. Long-dated Treasuries outperformed, balancing out their underperformance on Friday. Stock index futures slipped. The euro was hurt by the German sentiment survey and uncertainty about Spain's progress toward asking for a bailout. Business sentiment in Germany, the strongest of the euro zone's economies, fell in September, despite the European Central ...
