LONDON: Italian bond yields rose above 6 percent on Tuesday for the first time in 2-1/2 months, following Spain higher as investors rattled by Greece's failure to form a new government cut exposure to riskier assets. German Bund futures reversed losses to end slightly up on the day and could scale new highs in the coming day after Greece's President said the country would hold new elections, adding to fears of a possible exit from the euro. Pressure on Spanish and Italian bonds had eased with German yields edging up earlier after the euro zone narrowly avoided recession in the first quarter of 2012 but the reprieve was short-lived after the Greek announcement. Italian 10-year yields rose 16 basis points to 6.03 percent, the highest since Feb. 2, while Spanish yields jumped 12 bps to 6.37 percent with the Irish equivalent surging 32 bps to 7.36 percent. A sustained rise above 6 percent could ...

LONDON: German Bunds fell on Tuesday as data released at the market open showed the country's gross domestic product grew more than expected in the first quarter but the move was set to be short-lived with political stalemate in Greece supporting the market. Traders had called for Bunds to open slightly higher but the paper was still expected to set new highs in coming days with Greece facing the liklihood of another round of elections and ...
MILAN: Italy raised its maximum target amount of 5.25 billion euros ($6.76 billion) in a bond auction on Monday in which the rate on three-year bonds held steady despite a spike in tensions on eurozone markets. The rate was at 3.91 percent compared with 3.89 percent in the last similar operation last month. It also sold 542 million euros in bonds due in 2020 at a rate of 5.33 percent, 651 million euros in bonds due in ...
LONDON: German government bond yields held near record lows on Friday as investor doubts that Greece will break its political deadlock and JPMorgan's revelation of a huge trading loss supported demand for low-risk investments. Greek conservative leader Antonis Samaras said there were still hopes a government could be formed after Sunday's inconclusive election, prompting a brief fall in German Bund futures. Talks between the parties were seen as a last-ditch attempt to form a coalition. Many traders ...
LONDON: German government bond yields edged higher at Thursday's open, retreating from record lows on short-term relief that Greece secured funds to meet bond repayments, whi le Spanish yields would come in focus after the country took over its fourth largest lender Bankia. But Bunds were expected to resume their march higher as political deadlock in Greece increased the risk of insolvency and a possible messy exit from the euro zone. Th ere are also worries ...
LONDON: Five-year German bond yields held near record lows on Wednesday ahead of an auction as investors weighed up appetite for safety against record low returns, with deep-seated concerns about Europe's political and economic landscape dominating sentiment. That uncertainty combined with unease about Spain's debt-ridden commercial banking system drove that country's benchmark yields through the key 6 percent level. The backdrop was fundamentally favourable for the issuance of safe-haven German debt, with worries over Greece's political future ...
PARIS: The interest rate on Spain's benchmark 10-year bonds soared above 6 percent on Wednesday, a borrowing rate widely believed to be unsustainable for the crisis-hit Spanish government. Shortly after mid-day yields on the secondary market were 6.028 percent, up sharply from 5.817 at Tuesday's close, as investors worried over the possible fallout of the crisis in Greece where anti-austerity parties made huge gains in general elections on Sunday. The yield on Germany's benchmark bonds meanwhile fell ...
