Bunds steady, market wary of Spain crisis response  LONDON: A rise in safe-haven German bond prices after Spain said it was becoming shut out of bond markets proved short-lived on Tuesday, suggesting some investors see a growing chance the country will take external help for its banks. Treasury Minister Cristobal Montoro said the country's high borrowing costs meant "Spain doesn't have the market door open", adding that the European Union should help to recapitalise its fragile banking sector. That upset jittery investors, increasing demand for the safety of German debt futures, which rallied to a session high of 146.34 before appetite for riskier assets recovered, also helped by solid US economic data. Bund prices were last flat on the day in thin trade on the second of two bank holidays in Britain. Worries that the cost of rescuing Spain's banks may be too high for the country's already-stretched public finances sent the risk premium on Spanish debt to a euro-era high last ...

"This is some profit-taking after the rally of ...
Bunds steady near highs, US worries grow  LONDON: German debt futures held near record highs on Monday as demand for low-risk assets was supported by weak US employment data last week, which heaped extra tension on markets already rattled by the euro zone's intensifying debt crisis. Bund futures fell 10 ticks to 146.24 shortly after the open, but remained at extremely elevated levels after hitting a record high of 146.89 on Friday. Last week, the contract rallied 227 ticks. Analysts said the flight to ...
Investors stampede to safe govt debt, stocks drop  LONDON: US Treasury yields hit their lowest in hundreds of years and world stocks dropped towards 2012 lows on Friday, as investors scrambled for lifelines on worries about Spain's parlous finances and China's growth outlook. US stock futures pointed to a sharply lower open, with futures for the S&P 500, Dow Jones and Nasdaq 100 down between 0.8 and 1.2 percent. With euro-zone debt signals flashing red again and Chinese demand seen slowing, record after record has ...

Spanish yields fall, but stay close to euro-era highs  LONDON: Spanish bond yields eased on Thursday, but remained close to their highest levels in the history of the euro zone as markets expect the Madrid government to eventually ask for outside help to bail out its banks.
