Gilts rise as uncertainty over Greece lingers, eye BoE minutes  LONDON: British gilts rose in early trade on Wednesday after euro zone finance ministers failed to reach an agreement overnight on releasing another aid tranche for Greece, dampening appetite for riskier assets.   Greece's international lenders failed to agree on how to get the country's debt down to a sustainable level. Eurogroup Chairman Jean-Claude Juncker said the delay was caused by "technical reasons" and other officials said a deal was close.   "With market sentiment generally positive in the past few days, renewed concerns surrounding Greece could act as a catalyst for a resurgence of negative sentiment," said Barclays strategists.   At 0837 GMT, the December gilt future was 11 ticks higher at 119.53, broadly in line with the equivalent Bund , which was 15 ticks higher at 142.53.   A key focus for gilt investors on Wednesday will be the minutes from the Bank of England's latest policy meeting, due for release at 0930 GMT.   The minutes will ...

Euro rises to 6-1/2 month high against yen  LONDON: The euro extended gains against the Japanese yen on Wednesday to hit a 6-1/2 month high on speculation of more monetary easing in Japan and as politicians stepped up efforts to find a solution to the debt crisis in Greece.   The euro rose to 105.235 yen, its highest level since early May. Traders cited an option barrier at 105.50 yen. The euro's gains against the yen helped it to pare losses against the dollar. It ...
Euro steady as Greece optimism offsets France downgrade  LONDON: The euro held steady against the dollar on Tuesday as cautious optimism that euro zone ministers would release funds to debt-ridden Greece offset a cut in France's credit rating.   Finance ministers meet later in the day to discuss unlocking delayed aid payments to Greece, a day after Athens passed laws to enforce budget targets and appease foreign lenders.   Signs that Greece seemed to be on track to receive the funding supported demand for the euro, which ...
Swedish crown to be stronger than in earlier downturns-finmin  STOCKHOLM: Sweden's crown currency is likely to be higher in the current economic downturn than in past activity dips, Finance Minister Anders Borg said on Tuesday.   Speaking at a seminar on the economy, he said central bank worries over high levels of household debt were restraining monetary policy and that wider economic fundamentals were better than elsewhere.   This meant the crown would be "stronger" compared with earlier situations with the same economic conditions.   He also backed tightening up ...
Swiss franc tracks euro lower on France rating cut  ZURICH: The Swiss franc weakened against the dollar on Tuesday, giving up some of Monday's gains as it tracked the euro lower after Moody's cut France's sovereign credit rating, though hopes of approval for a Greek aid package capped losses.   The franc has been shadowing the euro closely since the Swiss National Bank imposed a 1.20 per euro cap more than a year ago after a strong run up in the Swiss currency threatened to tip ...
Euro rises on prospects of Greek funding deal LONDON: The euro rose against the dollar on Monday as optimism grew that deals may be in prospect on more funding for Greece and on tackling the US "fiscal cliff".   However, analysts said concerns about differences of opinion between euro zone officials and the International Monetary Fund may limit the euro's gains.   Euro zone finance ministers are due to meet on Tuesday to discuss Greece's debt problems.   The euro was up 0.2 percent at $1.2763, having earlier hit ...
