Euro zone deflation worries shield German Bunds from upbeat Fed LONDON: German Bunds held steady on Thursday as deflation worries in the euro zone, underscored by figures from Spain, offset the impact of the U.S. Federal Reserve ending its bond-buying programme with a positive note on the economic outlook.Spanish consumer prices fell 0.2 percent in October compared with a decline of 0.3 percent in the previous month. While in line with expectations, the fact that the figure held below zero reinforces bets that the European Central Bank may have to ease monetary policy even further.On the other side of the Atlantic, the U.S. central bank dropped a reference to labour market slack as "significant", in a show of confidence on the economy.It also largely dismissed recent market volatility, dimming European growth and low inflation as unlikely to undercut progress towards its unemployment and inflation goals.As a result, yields on U.S. Treasuries rose roughly 4 basis points on Wednesday, while short-term ...

Spanish, Italian yields fall as banks health check brings relief LONDON: Spanish and Italian government bond yields fell on Monday after the euro zone bank stress tests showed no major bank was in trouble, while those that failed having only a relatively small capital hole to fill.Yields remained around the day's lows after Germany's Ifo business survey came in weaker than expected, reflecting a calmer market after a raft of poor data caused one of the sharpest sell-offs in peripheral bonds two weeks ago.Only 25 ...
Upbeat business surveys encourage investors out of Bund refuge LONDON: German government bond yields edged higher on Thursday after an unexpected uptick in euro zone business surveys staved off fears the bloc could be headed for a triple-dip recession. Markit, which publishes the survey, said the positive reading for the euro zone manufacturing sector points to an expansion in gross domestic product in the current quarter."There's been a string of bad news so this is one thing at least to give a little bit ...
Investors return to periphery debt as ECB mulls corporate bond buys LONDON: Low-rated euro zone bond yields fell on Tuesday after several sources told Reuters the ECB was considering buying corporate bonds, quelling some concerns that the central bank was not doing enough to stoke inflation and growth.The report also prompted investors to pull out of safe haven German bonds, where they had sought refuge after a series of weak growth data - the latest of which came from China on Monday - dragged on the ...
Solid US data calms euro zone bond market but more volatility seen LONDON: Euro zone bond markets looked more stable on Monday after solid US economic data eased some of the concerns over a slowdown in global growth that led to sharp sell-offs in peripheral debt last week.Yields on the euro zone's lowest-rated debt rose by 40 to over 200 basis points from lows to highs last week -- among the biggest moves seen since the peak of the debt crisis -- before retreating on Friday.Signs that ...
UK gilts tumble for second day as equities rebound LONDON: British government bonds fell steeply for a second day on Friday, after share prices rebounded and investors judged that Wednesday's leap up in gilt prices was overdone.
