Ten-year gilt yields hit 10-week high on Draghi, data  LONDON: Ten-year gilt yields rose to a 10-week high on Friday, extending Thursday's sell-off in safe-haven assets after the European Central Bank announced plans to buy euro zone peripheral debt and British industrial output grew faster than expected. The yield on a 10-year gilt jumped 8 basis points on the day to touch 1.798 percent at 1049 GMT, a level last seen on June 29, as prices fell sharply following Thursday's news conference from ECB President Mario Draghi. "Since the Draghi comments, markets have moved into 'risk on' rather than 'risk off'," said Moyeen Islam, fixed income strategist at Barclays. "Equities are doing pretty well and gilts and Bunds are both down." After outperforming German government debt over the past couple of days, due to the greater effect of potential ECB action on investor appetite for Bunds, gilts yield spread over Bunds widened 2 basis points to 17.5 basis points following a bounce ...

Spanish bonds rally as ECB unveils bond buying plan  LONDON: Spanish bonds rallied to their strongest level in nearly three months on Thursday as investors gave a cautious welcome to details on the ECB's plans to ease pressure on troubled euro zone states by buying bonds. Most of the rally came before the European Central Bank meeting, driven by leaks of the plan's detail, but the move continued as bank president Mario Draghi outlined a potentially unlimited bond buying programme.

Bunds fall before ECB, scope for disappointment seen  LONDON: Spanish government bond yields fell and German debt sold off on Thursday with expectations high that the European Central Bank will detail plans to buy struggling euro zone countries' debt to curb the bloc's long-running debt crisis.

Yields at Spain debt sale fall on ECB purchase hopes  MADRID: Spain's borrowing costs dropped sharply at a debt auction on Thursday from previous sales, although any relief may be brief if the European Central Bank fails to unveil a significant bond-buying plan to prop up the euro zone's struggling economies. Spain sold 3.5 billion euros ($4.4 billion) of bonds maturing in 2014, 2015 and 2016, raising the top end of a targeted range of between 2.5 billion and 3.5 billion. The drop in yields reflected investors' ...
Turkish bond yields inch down on expectations of central bank easing  ISTANBUL: Turkish bond yields inched down on Thursday on prospects that the central bank will loosen monetary policy at its meeting on Sept. 18, while the lira and stocks were steady. By 1011 GMT, the yield on Turkey's two-year benchmark bond was at 7.56 percent, down from a previous close at 7.60 percent.

Bunds inch up before sale of new 10-year bonds  LONDON: German government bond futures inched up at Wednesday's open but may come under some selling pressure before a sale of a new 10-year bond later in the day. Despite expectations the European Central Bank will flesh out details of its proposed bond buying programme at its policy meeting on Thursday, demand for lower-risk bonds has been strong this week at Belgian and Austrian auctions, while Bunds have been trading in a tight range.  "Bunds might come ...
Spain, Italy yields fall as ECB speculation grows  LONDON: Spanish and Italian bond yields fell sharply on Tuesday with investors expecting the ECB to detail a plan to tackle the debt crisis, but demand for lower-risk paper remained solid given uncertainty over the scheme.
