Greece was the exception in the European bond market, as its yields rose after the latest talks with creditors failed to deliver any solution to its debt crisis.But German 10-year yields, the benchmark for euro zone borrowing costs, led other euro zone bond yields down, steadying after a dramatic sell-off that has driven up Bund yields some 55 basis points from a record low of 0.05 percent in mid-April. European Central Bank policymakers helped halt that sell-off earlier in the week, with Executive Board member Benoit Coeure saying the bank ...

Greece raises 1.138bn amid default fears: debt agency ATHENS: Greece on Wednesday raised 1.14 billion euros ($1.27 billion) in three-month treasury bills in a bid to stave off a damaging default that could be weeks away, the debt management agency said.
