LONDON: Bund futures hit session lows on Wednesday after a German sale of 32-year bonds drew fewer bids than the total amount offered as record low coupons hurt demand for the safe-haven paper. This was the second poor Bund auction in two weeks after a 10-year auction also suffered the same fate as ultra low German yields sidelined dealers. June Bund futures fell 43 ticks on the day to 140.19 from 140.44 before the auction results. Copyright Reuters, 2012 ...

LONDON: Yields on Dutch and peripheral euro zone government bonds eased on Tuesday as the Netherlands sold bonds without problems, calming markets a day after the government collapsed in a crisis over budget cuts. The Netherlands raised 2 billion euros through the sale of two- and 25-year bonds, around the middle of the target range, a quite normal outcome at Dutch auctions. Borrowing costs rose but were broadly in line with market rates. "The negative news doesn't ...
MILAN: Italy raised nearly 3.5 billion euros ($4.6 billion) in a short-term bond sale on Tuesday but at sharply higher interest rates amid fresh concerns over the eurozone outlook, the Bank of Italy said. Rome issued bonds worth 3.44 billion euros. The offer included 2.5 billion euros in bonds due in 2014 which were sold to give buyers a yield, or rate of return of 3.35 percent, up from 2.35 percent at a similar sale in ...
LONDON: Order books at the syndication of Britain's 2052 gilt have exceeded 8 billion pounds, about 40 minutes after they opened, a source familiar with the deal said on Tuesday.

As standard with gilt syndications, the opening of books, launch and pricing of the ...
LONDON: Dutch and peripheral euro zone bonds sold off on Monday, driving Spanish yields back above 6 percent, as a political crisis in the Netherlands stoked investor fears euro zone commitments to contain the debt crisis were under threat. The premium investors demand to hold Dutch bonds rather than German benchmarks surged to its highest in three years after the Dutch government failed to agree budget cuts, making an early election almost inevitable. Two broadcasters said the ...
LONDON: German Bund futures rose near record highs on Monday and French bonds slipped as investors worried that a potential presidential election win by the French Socialists would compromise the euro zone's commitment to fight its debt crisis. Dutch bonds are also seen under pressure after the Netherlands government failed to agree budget cuts, casting doubt on its support for future euro zone measures to contain the crisis. French bond futures slipped after Socialist Francois Hollande won ...
LONDON: Spanish government bond yields rose on Thursday, in the wake of auctions which although posting reasonable results fell short of market expectations and failed to alleviate concerns over the country's long-term fiscal sustainability. The yield on 10-year Spanish government bonds was last up 4 basis points at 5.89 percent. "The bid-to-cover looked good but the bids were below what the market had expected so this is why we're selling off right now," one trader said. "The ...
