London Olympics fail to boost British official retail sales  LONDON: British retailers failed to win a major boost from the London Olympic Games, official data showed on Thursday, with online sales slumping despite Britons staying at home to watch the sporting spectacle. Sales volumes fell 0.2 percent in August compared with July, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said in a statement. That tallied with market expectations, according to analysts polled by Dow Jones Newswires. The ONS added that sales in August grew 2.7 percent compared with the same period a year earlier. That was less than forecasts for a 2.9-percent gain. However, non-store retail sales -- which is mostly online business but also includes mail order -- tumbled by 6.7 percent in August. That was the biggest monthly drop since December 2007. "Feedback from online retailers suggests that sales were lower as consumers watched the Olympics instead of shopping online," the ONS added in the statement. The London Games took place for a ...

Spain places 10-year bonds at lower rate of 5.666pc  MADRID: Spain borrowed 4.799 billion euros ($6.25 billion) in bond auctions on Thursday, paying sharply reduced interest rates for the critical long maturity of 10 years. Spain, fighting to avoid having to seek rescue funding, placed its 10-year bonds at an average rate of 5.666 percent, down from 6.647 percent at the last such auction on August 2. A rate of below 6.0 percent is considered important for Spain, since borrowing rates above this level are seen ...
Spain sells 4.8bn euros of bonds, beats target  MADRID: Spain comfortably sold 4.8 billion euros of bonds on Thursday, passing a second test of appetite for its debt this week even if doubts remain over how long relatively benign market conditions will persist as the country dithers over European aid. The Treasury sold 859 million euros of a key 10-year bond, and 3.9 billion euros of a new three-year issue, which together were well above the 3.5 billion to 4.5 billion euro target. Financing costs ...
Turkish bond yields slightly up; Olmuksa shares rise  ISTANBUL: Turkish bond yields rose slightly on Thursday as investors awaited next week's debt auctions and on the stock market Olmuksa shares were up almost five percent after the parent firm sold its stake in the paper and cardboard maker.  The lira was trading flat and Istanbul's main share index was just below flat following weakness in Asian markets.  Turkey's two-year benchmark bond yield stood at 7.41 percent, slightly up from Wednesday's close of 7.39 percent. "Next week's ...
Gilts climb with Bunds after weak French, Asian data  LONDON: British gilt futures jumped with German Bunds early on Thursday after weak French and Chinese manufacturing surveys and a fall in Japan's exports increased demand for safe haven government debt. Shares fell after surveys showed manufacturing in France shrank at its fastest pace since April 2009 in September and contracted in China for the 11th month in a row. Strategists said a fall in Japanese exports for the third month in a row also fuelled appetite ...
Bunds rise before Spain LONDON: German Bund futures rose on Thursday, with investors cautious before Spain goes to the market to raise funds as it mulls if and when to seek a bailout that would open the way for European Central Bank intervention. The pressure is ramping up on the euro zone's fourth largest economy to seek financial help, with borrowing costs over ten years briefly creeping above 6 percent this week.  But Spain remains reluctant to ask for aid which ...
