Russian five-year bond sale sees strong demand  MOSCOW: Russia saw strong demand for five-year OFZ treasury bonds at an auction on Wednesday, as high yields eclipsed economic gloom. "At the moment, there is a lot of homeless money in the West seeking to find any income, while Western markets offer lower yields," Danskebank analyst Vladimir Miklashevsky said. The finance ministry sold 19.16 billion roubles ($619 million) of 7.4 percent OFZ bonds maturing April 2017 out of the 20 billion on offer. The average rate was 7.53 percent, compared with guidance for an upper boundary of 7.50-7.55 percent announced by the ministry on Tuesday. Demand at the top of the guidance reached 27.01 billion roubles. Aton analysts said in a note the auction was successful partly because of the OFZ's relatively high liquidity. Before the auction, analysts had predicted weak interest given an oil-steered weakening in the rouble and a sell-off in the stock market. Copyright Reuters, 2012 ...

Gilts follow Bunds higher on renewed Spain concern  LONDON: British government bonds followed their German counterparts higher on Wednesday, driven by concerns about Spain's reluctance to seek a bailout and fresh worries about global growth. A relatively thin events calendar in Britain looked unlikely to provide the market with much extra momentum. The Bank of England's credit conditions survey due at 0830 GMT was set to reflect banks' caution when lending to smaller firms while economists expected the CBI retail survey for September to show ...
Stock sell-off boosts Bunds before auction  LONDON: German Bund futures rallied at the open on Wednesday as losses in US and Asian stock markets and concerns about Spain fuelled demand for safe-haven paper before a sale of German 10-year bonds.   Germany will sell up to 5 billion euros of a bond maturing in 2022 in an auction that could be helped by a recent deterioration in sentiment towards riskier assets as the euphoria over plans for central bank intervention subsided.   Protesters clashed with ...
