Gilts climb with Bunds ahead of 2052 linker sale  LONDON: British government bonds rose early on Tuesday, taking their cue from Bunds as traders focusing on a syndicated sale of new 2052 index-linked gilts expected this session. Bund futures were boosted by a media report saying lawyers for Germany's central bank were checking the legality of the European Central Bank's bond purchase plan. The report added to investor concern over Spain's reluctance to seek a bailout.  At 0740 GMT the December gilt future was 15 ticks up at 119.62, while the equivalent Bund future was 19 ticks higher. "It's a combination of renewed safe-haven flows and some positioning ahead of the 2052 linker syndication," said Nick Stamenkovic, fixed-income strategist at RIA Capital Markets.  "Asian equity markets performed pretty sluggishly after a poor performance on Wall Street and that's giving core government bonds a pretty good bid." Strategists expect strong demand at the syndication, given the concession built into the paper, attractive real yield and ...

Bunds rise after Spain says in no rush to seek aid  LONDON: German Bund futures rose on Monday after Spain's economy minister Luis de Guindos said over the weekend that his country will not rush to seek external aid to finance its debt. Such a move would activate the European Central Bank's new bond-buying programme, which many analysts consider a powerful tool against the euro zone debt crisis. But European officials also said they did not expect Spain to seek an assistance programme before a regional election in ...
UK gilt futures hit 8-day high on growth worries  LONDON: British gilt futures rallied to an eight-day high on Thursday after weak Chinese and euro zone business activity surveys increased global demand for safe-haven government debt and helped ensure solid demand at a sale of five-year gilts. Purchasing managers' indices, which survey thousands of companies worldwide every month, showed a widening chasm between sickly France and a more resilient Germany and an 11th successive monthly fall in Chinese factory activity.  December gilt futures settled 45 ticks ...
