    Greek 10-Yr Yield At 3-Yr Low As European Bonds Post Gains

    By Michael Aneiro

    It’s been a great week for Greek bonds. First Fitch upped Greece’s credit rating by a notch into slightly-less-junky territory, and then the Wall Street Journal reported that investor interest in Greek corporate bonds has been surging. Today, the ten-year Greek government bond yield closed at 8.287%, according to Tradeweb data, its lowest level since June 1, 2010. That yield peaked at an outlandish 41.268% in March 2012.

    A bunch of other European sovereign bonds have had a pretty good week too, and a pretty good day Friday, as Bloomberg’s Lucy Meakin and Lukanyo Mnyanda report:

    Spain’s 10-year yield dropped the most in two weeks on speculation investors’ view of the country is recovering after it sold 7 billion euros ($8.97 billion) of 10-year bonds through banks on May 14. Italy allotted 6 billion euros of 30-year debt the following day. Austrian, Belgian and French bonds also rose as European Central Bank Executive Board Member Joerg Asmussen said he doesn’t see inflation pressure and policy will remain expansive as long as needed. German bunds were little changed….

    Spain’s 10-year yield fell 10 basis points, or 0.1 percentage point, to 4.21 percent at the 5 p.m. close in London, the biggest decline since May 2. The 5.4 percent bond due in September 2023 rose 0.835, or 8.35 euros per 1,000-euro face amount, to 109.325.

    Italy’s 10-year yield dropped eight basis points to 3.90 percent, also the biggest decline since May 2.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
