ECB bets send euro zone yields lower as Fed signals liftoff LONDON: Euro zone bond yields fell on Thursday as the prospect of an imminent U.S. rate hike failed to shake investor confidence that the European Central Bank is just weeks away from announcing further stimulus.Minutes from the Federal Reserve's last policy meeting showed a solid core of policymakers had rallied behind the country's first hike in nearly a decade, firming bets for liftoff on Dec. 16.Some strategists had previously suggested a rate rise from the ...
