Bunds slip but Spain doubts contain move  LONDON: German government bond prices slipped on Tuesday but did not stray far, supported by uncertainty over when Spain may ask for a bailout after euro zone ministers said the country did not need one yet.   Riskier assets were underpinned by global central bank action and European shares were set to open higher - taking the shine off Bunds - after China's central bank became the latest to take additional stimulus measures to support growth .   Euro zone ministers said Spain was taking steps to overhaul its economy and was funding itself successfully in financial markets, dashing hopes for a speedy resolution to the debt problems of the euro zone's fourth largest economy.   Nonetheless, investors expect that Madrid will ultimately have little choice but to ask for aid.   "At 10-year yields comfortably below 6 percent, the Spanish government remains loath to compromise on conditions, hoping that a rating affirmation by Moody's this month will ...

Bunds rebound but expectations of euro zone finmins low  LONDON: German Bund futures rebounded on Monday after a sell-off the previous session, although investors were reluctant to take big positions before a meeting of euro zone finance ministers later in the day.  German Bund futures were 48 ticks higher on the day at 141.35, having fallen 80 ticks on Friday as a surprise drop in US unemployment underpinned appetite for riskier assets.   "The market was probably a little bit oversold on the back of the ...
Gilts reverse losses, Spain uncertainty supports  LONDON: Gilts climbed early on Monday, correcting what dealers saw as an excessive slide the previous session on the back of strong US employment figures.   Uncertainty over the timing of a Spanish bailout request and low expectations ahead of a euro zone meeting provided additional support to safe-haven assets.   At 0816 GMT, December gilt futures were 34 ticks higher at 120.28, while equivalent Bunds were 42 ticks up. On Friday the British contract hit its lowest level ...
Bunds rise, expectations low for euro zone meeting  LONDON: Bund futures rose on Monday after a sharp sell-off in the previous session as u ncertainty over the timing of a Spanish bailout request dominated sentiment and little progress was expected from a meeting of euro zone finance ministers later on.   Euro zone finance ministers will formally launch the euro zone's permanent, 500-billion-euro bailout fund on Monday, and will also discuss an expected request by the Spanish government for a precautionary credit line from the ...
Portuguese 10-year bond yields fall to 3-week low  LONDON: Portuguese 10-year government bond yields fell to a three week low on Friday, with traders citing some optimism caused by the country's recent tentative steps back into the debt market.   Portuguese 10-year bond yields fell 39 basis points on the day to 8.32 percent and yields on shorter dated bonds also fell.   "There's not much flow behind it, but some people are betting that things are going to get a bit better for them after the ...
Bunds fall, hold tight range before US data  LONDON: German Bunds fell, but remained locked in a tight range on Friday, bogged down by uncertainty over Spain's readiness to seek a bailout and awaiting key US jobs data later in the session.   As markets continued to wait for fresh signals from Spain, the day's focus fell on US labour market data, a key influence on Federal Reserve policy, with the non-farm payrolls report expected to show 113,000 jobs were added in September.   "It's obviously all ...
