German bond yields steady before 10-year bond sale  LONDON: German yields were steady on Wednesday before a sale of 10-year German debt which might attract added demand after euro zone finance ministers' latest meeting to address the euro crisis did little to reassure investors.  Italian yields were mixed, with markets largely shrugging off comments by Prime Minister Mario Monti on Tuesday that his country could be interested in tapping the euro zone's rescue fund for bond support.  The comments underscored the scale of policymakers' problems in coming to grips with a crisis that is now threatening to engulf the euro zone's third largest economy, long deemed too big to be bailed out.  That backdrop is likely to add to the appeal of a German debt sale that offers investors higher returns further up the yield curve after two-year bond yields turned negative following European Central Bank rate cuts last week. "It should be a good auction, redemptions and coupons should ...

Bunds steady; investors brace for 10-year German sale  LONDON: German Bund futures were little changed on Wednesday before a sale of 10-year debt which could see some demand after a meeting of euro zone finance ministers did little to soothe investor concerns about an intractable euro zone debt crisis. Italian BTP futures only came under slight pressure in early trading after Prime Minister Mario Monti said his country could be interested in tapping the euro zone's rescue fund for bond support. The comments underscored the ...
Eurozone bond market tensions ease  PARIS: Rates of return on Spanish and Italian benchmark bonds eased Tuesday on improving sentiment after eurozone ministers approved a first slice of rescue loans for Spanish banks. As trading wound down, the yield on 10-year Spanish debt had dropped to 6.778 percent, sharply lower than the danger level of 7.023 percent at close on Monday. A rate above 7.0 percent is believed to be unsustainable and a strong indicator that a eurozone country will require a ...
Bunds hover near one-month high after euro meeting  LONDON: German Bund futures hovered near one-month highs and Spanish 10-year yields remained over the 7 percent mark on Tuesday after a meeting of euro zone finance ministers produced little to improve appetite for riskier assets. Continued caution on the part of investors is likely to benefit higher-yielding, non-peripheral markets like France or Belgium as well as safe-haven German debt, with demand for Italian and Spanish bonds remaining fragile. Earlier on Tuesday, euro zone ministers agreed to ...
Spanish, Italian bond yields fall; euro bounces  LONDON: Spanish and Italian government bond yields fell and the euro turned positive against the dollar on Tuesday, on reports that German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said instruments to tackle the debt crisis could be used without prior announcement. Spanish 10-year yields were last 14 basis points lower at 6.93 percent, while equivalent Italian yields were 12 bps lower at 5.98 percent. Two-year Spanish yields were 17 bps lower at 4.98 percent, while their Italian counterparts were ...
Turkish bonds firm on rate cut hopes  ISTANBUL: Turkish two-year bond yields fell below 8 percent on Monday, the lowest since September 2011, driven by expectations that the central bank will ease monetary policy and investors searching for more rewarding bets than euro zone government debt. The lira was also firmer, trading at 1.8190 against the dollar at 0800 GMT, strengthening from 1.8215 late on Friday. Against a euro-dollar basket, it strengthened to 2.0265 from 2.0319. Global economic weakness also helped drive the fall ...
