The data followed surveys showing an unexpected contraction in Spanish factory activity on Monday, and offered some relief after concerns that a potential slowdown in the euro zone economy could push inflation further below the ECB's target. Investors are very sensitive to economic data before a European Central Bank policy meeting on Thursday, with many in the market expecting ECB President Mario Draghi to signal further monetary easing next year. Euro zone services sector and revised third-quarter quarter gross domestic product data are due later on Wednesday. US ADP national employment figures will draw special attention before Friday's non-farm payrolls report, which will be scoured for clues to whether the Federal Reserve will trim its bond-buying stimulus in ...

Spain sells 3.5bn euros of new 2017 bond MADRID: Spain sold 3.5 billion euros ($4.7 billion) of a new 2017 bond on Thursday, almost completing its bond-issuance programme for 2013, a year in which financing costs have fallen to record lows from near-unsustainable highs.

German Bund futures fall after Fed minutes LONDON: German Bund futures fell on Thursday after minutes of the US Federal Reserve's October meeting showed policymakers felt they could trim stimulus at one of the next few meetings provided this was warranted by economic growth data.
