German bond yields fall as ECB policy decision, US data eyed LONDON: German bond yields fell on Wednesday on expectations that the European Central Bank could hint on Thursday at more monetary stimulus to counter disinflationary pressure from sliding commodity prices. Growing concern about the health of the global economy after weak Chinese and US economic data and a renewed slide in oil prices also supported underlying demand for top-rated government bonds. Investors fear that reduced consumption from China will exacerbate a fall in oil prices and keep consumer price growth muted, putting pressure on the ECB to expand its 1 trillion euro asset purchase programme targeted to end next September. The central bank is expected to cut its inflation forecasts at Thursday's policy meeting. A measure of long-term market inflation expectations watched closely by the ECB fell to 1.68 percent on Wednesday from 1.74 percent on Tuesday, retreating further from the ECB inflation target of just below 2 percent.

Croatia T-bill auction misses target ZAGREB: Croatia sold fewer Treasury bills than targeted at an auction Tuesday, with yields remaining flat, Finance Ministry data showed. The ministry sold 436 million kuna ($65.08 million) worth of bills against the 850 million kuna target. "Liquidity on the market is generally good, but not distributed equally among the participants. Another reason is that the banks are cautious awaiting the government's solution for the conversion of the local loans denominated in Swiss francs," a ...
German yields stable after inflation surprise LONDON: German bond yields held firm in holiday-thinned trading on Monday, failing to take much impetus from better-than-expected euro zone inflation data or efforts by policymakers to play down the impact of China's slowing economy. One speech in particular by US Federal Reserve vice-chair Stanley Fischer on Saturday kept alive the chance that the Fed will raise interest rates next month, the first increase in nearly a decade. A rate hike from the world's largest ...

The three lines on offer include a new 1.0 percent 10-year bond maturing in November 2025, as well as its 1.75 percent May 2023 bond and its 2.5 percent May 2030 bond. Copyright Reuters, 2015 ...
Italy sells top amount at bond auction, 5- and 10-yr yields rise MILAN: Italy paid more than it did a month ago to sell five- and 10-year bonds on Friday as jitters about a slowdown in Chinese growth made investors warier of holding riskier assets. The yield on a new 10-year bond rose at auction to 1.95 percent from 1.83 percent at a sale of the same maturity a month ago. The support provided to weaker euro zone bonds by the European Central Bank's bond-buying programme has ...
German yields dip as inflation data trumps oil bounce LONDON: German bond yields edged lower on Friday, defying a sudden surge in oil, as data showed consumer prices in Europe's biggest economy had been weighed down by falling energy costs. Data from states around the country showed inflation was either unchanged or slowing in August. The national rate due at 1200 GMT is expected to see an annualised increase of just 0.1 percent, the same as July's reading. Investors took little impetus from a ...
Unsure about China stimulus, investors return to safety of bonds LONDON: Euro zone bond yields fell back on Wednesday as the market euphoria from China's rate cut ebbed and investors feared more stimulus may be needed to halt a slowdown in the world's second largest economy. Yields on Europe's top-rated German debt reversed half of a 15 basis point surge seen after Tuesday's intervention by China, while world stocks failed to build on a temporary boost. The disappointing reaction in Chinese markets led to calls ...
