Spanish bond yields rise on bank crisis and recession
http://www.euronews.com/ The interest rates that Spain had to offer to sell its latest batch of government bonds shot up on Thursday. That came after economic data confirmed the eurozone's fourth largest economy was back in recession and on fears of a bank run at one of its largest lenders. Madrid had to pay around five percent to attract buyers at an auction of bonds maturing in four years time. That was way above the 3.374 percent paid the last time such bonds were sold. Longer term bonds are already close to unsustainable levels as 10-year yields have spiked back above six percent, which investors view as a pivot point that could accelerate a climb to seven percent. Official data confirmed the Spanish economy shrank by 0.3 percent in the first quarter, putting it back into recession. The country faces a prolonged downturn as the government cuts spending in an attempt to wrestle down its budget deficit. *Bankia beset* A major worry for Spain is a banking sector awash with bad loans, from the bursting of the property bubble. On Thursday the government had to deny a newspaper report that customers of nationalised lender Bankia had withdrawn more than one billion euros in deposits over the past week. "It's not true that there is an exit of deposits at this moment from Bankia," said Economy Secretary Fernando Jimenez Latorre. Bankia's president, José Ignacio Goirigolzarri, also tried to reassure calling the bank "extremely strong". The government last week took over Bankia, the country's fourth-largest lender which holds around 10 percent of Spanish deposits, in an attempt to dispel concerns over its ability to deal with losses related to the 2008 property crash.

Sluggish demand for Spanish bonds
Spain's latest attempt to sell government bonds met a lukewarm reception from investors. As a result, at its first bond auction in a month, Madrid had to pay a higher rate of interest to find buyers for three and a half billion euros worth of bonds due to be paid back in five years. That is despite European Central Bank buying Spain's bonds on secondary markets to stop the euro zone debt crisis spreading. ... http://www.euronews.net/

Interest rates falls after billions of Euros raised in Spanish debt auction
(20 Sep 2012) Spain raised 4.8 billion euros - equivalent to 6.2 billion US dollars - in a debt auction on Thursday that saw strong demand and a substantial drop in its borrowing costs. But analysts and investors warned that Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy should not take the successful sale as a sign that the pressure to seek a rescue package was over. After the European Central Bank (ECB) pledged two weeks ago to buy unlimited amounts of government bonds to help countries that are being strangled by their debts, Spanish borrowing costs have fallen sharply. Investors have grown more confident that, thanks to the ECB program, the Spanish government could continue to pay its bills. Thursday's successful auction of medium- and long-term bonds reflects this new confidence. The Treasury sold 859 million euros - equivalent to 1110 million US dollars - in benchmark 10-year bonds at an average rate of 5.67 percent, down from 6.65 percent in the last such auction August 2. Demand was 2.8 times the amount offered. It sold another 3.94 billion euros (5.1 billion US dollars) in three-year bonds at a rate of 3.84 percent, up from 3.6 percent. The total raised was 30 million euros more than planned. Salvador Isasa, the general manager of Inversis Bank in Madrid believes "there is kind of a tense calm right now" and people are waiting to what happens, and when Spains is going to ask for a bailout. Spain's borrowing costs have fallen from unsustainable highs since the European Central Bank in August unveiled plans to buy the bonds of financially weakened countries. However, the ECB plan, along with financial aid from Europe's bailout funds, comes with strings attached and Madrid has said it may apply for the aid if the terms are reasonable. Analysts say that if Spain doesn't request a bailout soon, it is only a matter of time before its borrowing costs rise to unhealthy levels again. Analysts and investors suspect the government is dawdling on the issue because it is afraid that a bailout will hurt the ruling Popular Party's chances in regional elections in Galicia and the Basque region next month. Thursday's bond sale came as Catalonia regional government president Artur Mas met conservative Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy for talks on his demand for greater fiscal powers so that his powerful northeastern region can better manage its debt and deficit burdens. The talks are the first since Mas led a massive rally in Barcelona last week that was seen as a show of strength for the region's pro-independence camp and a warning to Madrid.

Political scandal, weak economy impact Spanish bonds
http://www.euronews.com/ Spain's borrowing costs climbed at its latest bond auction due to an alleged corruption scandal amongst top politicians and concerns over its weak economy. However interest rates on the 4.6 billion euros worth of government bonds that were sold remain far below previous crisis levels and demand from investors was solid. For bonds maturing in two years time, Madrid had to offer just over 2.8 percent, but that is well down on the more than seven percent reached last summer. "The result of today's auction reflects the recent shift in sentiment towards Spain - a marked increase in yields after months of declines," said Nicholas Spiro, managing director of Spiro Sovereign Strategy in London. But he said that Spain should be pleased by the results given the current economic and political problems. *Scandal* Spain is also being scrutinised by investors for potential political instability because of a widening corruption scandal involving officials of the ruling People's Party. A former party treasurer, Luis Barcenas, has described as fakes handwritten ledgers published last week by El Pais newspaper, which accused the party of channelling payments through secret accounts from managers of building companies to its leaders, including Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy. Rajoy has also denied any wrongdoing. *Headwinds* Spain has been at the centre of the eurozone debt crisis as it fights to deflate one of the highest budget deficits in the bloc through wide-reaching austerity measures, which many claim could make economic recovery harder. The government is expected to announce a public deficit of around seven percent of gross domestic product in 2012 in the next few weeks, down from over nine percent a year earlier. However, many fear such a sharp reduction implies unprecedented budget cutting efforts that will be near impossible to continue. Madrid's budget plan faces strong headwinds from rising costs of unemployment at 26 percent, an aging population and high debt funding bills.

Spanish debt costs rise
http://www.euronews.com/ Spain's borrowing costs remain high despite the recent eurozone leaders' deal aimed at helping the region's most troubled economies. The Madrid Treasury paid the highest interest rates in over seven months when it sold government bonds maturing in ten years time on Thursday. However demand was solid which strategists said showed that Spain is still able to borrow on the markets. Domestic banks have been the main buyers at Spanish sovereign auctions since the European Central Bank injected nearly one trillion euros of cheap credit in December and February to liquidity-starved lenders. Spanish banks raised their holdings of domestic sovereign debt from 16.9 percent of the total in circulation in December to 29.2 percent in March. The Treasury sold 747 million euros in the 10-year bonds at an average yield of 6.43 percent, up from 6.044 percent at the last such auction on June 7. This marked only the fourth time Spain has sold 10-year bonds this year as it has concentrated on lower, less expensive maturities which were supported by the ECB loans.

Spain passes bond auction test
http://www.euronews.com/ Spain demonstrated on Thursday that it could still borrow on the international credit markets - and what was more at an affordable, though rising, rate of interest. As efforts continue for a European rescue of its debt-stricken banks, Madrid sold 2.1 billion euros worth of government bonds with strong demand from investors. The interest rate was a fraction over six percent on bonds that have to be repaid in 10 years time; up from 5.74 percent last month The success of the auction comes on talk of a rescue for Spanish banks and it eases the worries about how Madrid will finance its budget deficit, which is the third largest in the eurozone. It also showed Treasury Minister Cristobal Montoro was wrong when he said on Tuesday that Spain was being shut out of the credit markets because of the huge debts of the country's banks. Alessandro Giansanti, bond strategist with ING bank in Amsterdam, said: "There is a better environment over the last few days for Spanish bonds. Talk of a rescue for Spanish banks is the thing that is reducing risk aversion in the markets."

Rajoy scandal fears hit Spanish bonds
http://www.euronews.com/ The rate of interest the Spanish government is having to offer to get investors to buy its bonds rose sharply on Monday. A row over slush fund allegations involving Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and his political party caused bond yields to suffer their biggest one-day percentage jump since last September. That raised renewed fears Madrid might have to seek an international bailout, something which had looked less likely in recent months. At the same time the International Monetary Fund said that "risks to Spain's economy and hence to the financial sector remain elevated." The IMF's monitoring mission did however praised Madrid's efforts in repairing its broken banking system saying it had made "major progress" in setting up a so-called bad bank to take over the toxic property assets of lenders receiving state aid. But the monitors did say that bad bank still needs to publish an "updated and comprehensive long-term business plan".

Smooth Spanish bond sale, but euro zone still besieged
http://www.euronews.net/ For once there was some good news from the eurozone debt crisis as Spain was able to sell many more government bonds than it expected at its latest debt auction and did not have to offer investors too high a rate of interest. That showed that Spain is now considered a safer bet than Italy in terms of paying back its debts. But it was only a small positive and investors want to see more progress -- a fact noted by Europe's top central banker, Mario Draghi, who is urging politicians to "speak unambiguously", and then "deliver" on their promises.
Spanish bank bailout plan spooks markets
http://www.euronews.com/ The Spanish government's reported plan for rescuing the country's fourth-largest lender Bankia unsettled the financial markets Monday. Sources said Madrid was thinking of raising money to "recapitalise" Bankia using Spanish government bonds, which would then become collateral to borrow more cash from the European Central Bank, thereby directly involving the ECB in sorting out Spain's banking sector. Shares in Bankia plunged, the amount of interest that Madrid is having to offer to sell its government bonds jumped and the Spanish people continue to express their anger that they are having to pay to bailout the banks. The comments of Madrid resident Javier Casas were typical: "I don't think it's right that we have to pay for the debts of a private entity whose directors and managers generated the debt. No, I don't think it's fair." The financial markets are scared the Spanish government - which is already struggling to bring its budget deficit under control - may have to find billions more save other ailing banks. They are in trouble because the bursting of the Spanish property bubble and the country's slide into recession means they are awash with worthless investments, loans that are never going to be repaid and repossessed homes. Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy pinned the blame for rising Spanish borrowing costs not on Bankia, but on concern about the future of the euro zone and again ruled out seeking outside aid to revive a banking sector laid low by a property boom that has long since bust. "There are major doubts over the euro zone and that makes the risk premium for some countries very high. That's why it would be a very good idea to deliver a clear message there's no going back for the euro," Rajoy told a news conference. "There will not be any (European) rescue for the Spanish banking system," Rajoy added, before backing calls for the eurozone bailout fund, which will be in place from July, to be able to lend to banks direct.

Spanish borrowing costs hit new high
http://www.euronews.net/ Spain may have a new government pledged to restoring the country's finances to health, but the Treasury on Tuesday faced a jump in yields to their highest level in 14 years for issuing short-term bonds, the first issue since Sunday's elections. Three and six-month bonds are now costing Spain more than either Portugal and Greece. The average yield on a three-month treasury bill has doubled in a month and now stands at its highest level since it was re-introduced in 2003.

Spain's borrowing costs soar
http://www.euronews.com/ The amount of interest that the Spanish government is having to pay to borrow in the medium term has soared again to the highest since the launch of the euro. At its latest debt auction, Madrid was able to raise all the money it needed from investors but fears about the Spanish bank's black hole of debt meant it is paying a hefty price to find buyers for its government bonds. Analyst Javier Barnuevo of CVG said: "It is a good thing when we think short term because our financial needs seem to be covered. But the interest rate is high and that means that it won't be sustainable long term." The bond auction came just hours ahead of an independent report on the state of Spain's weaker banks which have been hammered by the effects of a property crash and the recession. Madrid is expected to make a formal request for tens of billions in European Union funds to rescue them. Banking sources believe the lenders will need to raise a further 60-70 billion euros to improve their capital reserves. The debt auction proved the Spanish Treasury can still borrow on international markets, albeit at a high cost, and it made the best of solid demand by selling 2.2 billion euros in bonds, above the targeted amount. "We want to emphasise the strong demand despite the current situation on the markets," an Economy Ministry source said. But concerns that Spain might have to take a full sovereign bailout meant that international investors are opting for less risky debt. While Madrid does not give immediate breakdown of buyers in primary auctions, data shows international investors are steering clear of Spain and have left the often troubled domestic banks to buy up the government's bonds.

How Long Can The Markets Shake Off Soaring Spanish Bond Yields?
Spanish bond yields are now trading above 6.0 percent on their 10 year note. This rise in bond yields has normally been very problematic for all of the major stock market indexes, however, today the European markets do not seem to be negatively affected by the spike in the Spanish yields. Most of the leading European stock indexes are actually trading higher on the session. The S&P 500 Index e-mini futures (ES-M2) are also trading higher before the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange. This tells us that traders and investors should simply focus on the U.S. Dollar Index. Remember, as long as the U.S. Dollar declines during the trading session the major stock indexes will usually inflate and trade higher. Some equities that could experience some early weakness due to the rising Spanish bond yields include Banco Santander, S.A. (ADR) (NYSE:STD), and the iShares MSCI Spain Index (ETF) (NYSEARCA:EWP).

You Can't Have A Debt Crisis If You Issue The Currency
Professor L. Randall Wray explaining why government debt is not a problem for a government that issues its own floating-exchange rate currency. Because the government issues the currency, it is always capable of making its payments on time, no matter how large they are. It never has to default. Furthermore, because it is the monopoly issuer of the currency, it chooses the interest rate it pays. If it wants to raise the interest rate, it can borrow more money (sell more bonds) to raise the rate. If it wants to lower the rate, it can borrow less money, or even lend money, in order to lower the interest rate. (If it did nothing, and just deficit spends money into existence without selling bonds, then this would drive interest rates to zero, because the private sector would have more cash then it wanted and no way to get rid of it without the government taxing or borrowing it back.) What's more, paying off the debt is not likely to be inflationary, even if it is "printing money." This is because when the government buys back a bond, it has not actually given any income to anybody or made anybody richer. It just changes the form of their savings: their portfolio had bonds, now it has cash instead, but the same dollar amount. It's like swapping red dollars for blue dollars. It's not likely to cause anybody to go out and spend any money they weren't already spending, and therefore it can't lead to rising prices. Now, the story is a little different if you have a fixed exchange rate. In order to fix the exchange rate, a government buys and sells foreign currency in order to move the market price. This means they must have the foreign currency, and so much operate their economy in such a way that the foreign currency flows in, otherwise they won't be able to maintain the peg. So, anything the government can do to reduce the amount of excess cash in circulation will reduce the amount of individuals trying to buy the foreign currency from the government, which means the government will be less likely to run out. So the government's treasury MUST offer whatever interest rate is necessary for the private sector to buy all of the government's bonds, and hold them. Not so on a floating currency: the government can sell the bonds to the central bank, or just stop issuing bonds and just spend the money into existence directly. But even on a fixed exchange rate, the government always has the ABILITY to pay any amount of debt. It just might not want to because of the adverse effects on its ability to maintain the fixed exchange rate.

Spain bond auction sees cost of borrowing rise
Spain has paid sharply higher yields of interest to borrow money on the international markets, to clear a crucial bond auction of three medium-term bonds. Which is better than the market could have predicted and ensures the stability of the Spanish market. Written and Presented by Ann Salter The Treasury sold 2.5 billion euros of two bonds maturing in 2015 and one bond maturing in 2016, at the top end of the targeted range. Analyst Pablo De Barrio was positive about the government getting back on target, speaking in Spanish he said "Although the cost has increased what we at least see is a higher demand, the government has cleared what it needed, it was 2.5 billion euros, well we have practically reached the target - one billion and something in the three year bonds, one billion and something in the four year bonds, and 4 million euros in an another special three year auction, so pretty much within the government's targets but paying more, of course." On bonds due to be paid back in January 2015, it had to pay an interest rate of 4.373%, up from 2.89% in April. on debt maturing in April 2016, Spain had to pay an interest rate of 5.106%, up from 3.374% on 15 March. And The bond maturing April 30, 2016 sold 1.1 billion euros with an average yield of 5.106 %, higher than 3.374 %March 15. Demand was lower than previously, with the bond 2.4 times subscribed after 4.1 times at the March auction. The government on May 9 took over Bankia, the country's fourth-largest lender, in an attempt to dispel concerns over the bank's ability to deal with losses related to the 2008 property crash. And this morning shares in Bankia slumped a further 10 percent ,compounding a week of falls, as small investors who had participated in a July stock market listing sold their holdings which have lost over half their value since the flotation.

Spain's borrowing costs hit new highs
http://www.euronews.com/ It is getting more difficult for Spain's government to borrow money. The Spanish Treasury did manage to sell just under three billion euros worth of government bonds in its latest auction on Thursday but had to offer higher rates of interest to entice investors. Demand was also down. That is because the financial markets remain unconvinced Spain's problems can be solved by the austerity measures being brought in as part of a bailout deal for the country's banks. Bond buyer Javier Ferrer, head of the debt desk at Ahorro Y Corporacion, explained the scepticism: "On longer term bonds the interest the treasury has had to pay is frankly high and that's where the auction suffered most. There are still many doubts about Spain, there are still doubts about what the conditions of the bailout are going to be. What happens in terms of the signing and agreement of the 'Memorandum of Understanding' for the bailout is very important." The final terms for the 100 billion euro bailout for Spanish banks will be discussed by EU finance ministers on Friday. *EU says no to bond buying* The European Commission has just said that that money can only be used for recapitalising the banks -not for buying government bonds - removing another potential lifeline for Madrid. "The up to 100 billion euros, which the euro zone has undertaken to provide to Spanish banks is to do just that, it is only for that purpose and not for any other," Commission spokesman Simon O'Connor told a regular briefing. "There is no link between assistance for bank recapitalisation in Spain and any other type of financial assistance, which might be requested at some further juncture by Spain or anybody else," he added. Spanish daily El Pais wrote on Thursday that any amount not used for bank recapitalisation out of the up to 100 billion euros could be used to buy public debt. "The press reports have been based on a misinterpretation of the legal document," O'Connor said. *What Spain sold* The Treasury sold 1.4 billion euros worth of bonds maturing October 31, 2014 with a 3.3 percent coupon, at an average yield of 5.204 percent compared to 4.335 percent last month, at a bid-to-cover ratio of 1.9 after 4.3 previously. It also sold 1.1 billion euros worth of bonds maturing in July 30, 2017, with a 5.5 percent coupon at a yield of 6.459 percent, above June's yield of 6.072 percent and 2.1 times subscribed compared to 3.4 times in June. The bond maturing October 31, 2019 with a 4.3 percent coupon, sold for a yield of 6.701 percent after 4.832 percent in February. The Treasury placed 548 million euros worth of the bond at a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.9 after 3.3 previously.

What is a Treasury Bond (T-Bond)?
Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Treasury Bond or T-Bond” A T-bond is a marketable, fixed-interest government debt security with a maturity of more than 10 years. Treasury bonds make interest payments semi-annually and the income that holders receive is only taxed at the federal level. Treasury bonds are issued with a minimum denomination of $1,000. The bonds are initially sold through auction in which the maximum purchase amount is $5 million if the bid is non-competitive or 35% of the offering if the bid is competitive. A competitive bid states the rate that the bidder is willing to accept; it will be accepted depending on how it compares to the set rate of the bond. A non-competitive bid ensures that the bidder will get the bond but he or she will have to accept the set rate. After the auction, the bonds can be sold in the secondary market.

Economist Daniel Lacalle (Mises.org/Lacalle) joins Jeff Deist to figure out the bizarro world of the bond bubble: negative interest rates, anemic rate spreads between government bonds and "high yield" bonds, and central banks as the unseemly buyers of last resort. They discuss the Fed's interest rate hikes, Jerome Powell's focus on data, the US housing market, and why all of us have a stake in seeing central bank balance sheets shrink.

Spain's bank bailout plans boost borrowing costs
http://www.euronews.com/ Spain's shaky banks, the country's indebted regional governments and Madrid's plans for helping them have pushed up its borrowing costs to unsustainable levels. Spain reportedly plans to issue new government bonds to raise the money it needs. That would increase its debts, which are already causing concern to the financial markets and European officials. The amount of interest Spain is having to offer to get investors to buy its bonds that mature in 10 years time is near 6.5 percent, perilously close to the levels that led to bailouts in Greece, Portugal and Ireland. Investment banker Enrique Quemadan of One to One Capital Partners in Madrid said borrowing cost have rocketed due to fears about Spain's financial system but the government is forcing financial institutions to do what they should have done four years ago. He added: "In 2008, the US and British governments fixed the financial systems there by injecting public money into banks. Now finally Spain's doing the same, banks are being nationalised, which is positive, but we have a shock from the impact we should have had years ago." Bankia is the most troubled. In 2011 it announced the second biggest banking loss in Spanish history - despite paying its top bosses 22 million euros. But how much of a mess the others are in will not be known until audits are completed next month. Spain has insisted it does not need external funds to bail out its banks despite the dire state of the economy. Prime Minister Rajoy said on Monday: "There will not be any (European) rescue for the Spanish banking system. Our problem is the accumulated monumental debt we Spaniards have at this time and it's that debt that we have to refinance, which is difficult at this time." Brussels would have to approve whatever Madrid does to help the banks and the regions. On Tuesday the European Commission said it has not received details of what the Spanish government intends to do. Spain has been hoping the European Central Bank would help by restarting its dormant bond-buying programme or with more long-term loans to banks But ECB policymaker Ewald Nowotny said on Tuesday that had not been discussed and it was up to national governments to rescue their banks.

France's borrowing rates drop sharply in a �9.1 billion bond sale
(19 Jul 2012) Germany's Parliament has approved a rescue package worth up to 100 billion euros (122 billion US dollars) for Spain's struggling banks, which the finance minister said was needed to help prevent the eurozone's debt crisis spreading further. Lawmakers voted on Thursday 473-97 in favour, with 13 abstentions. The two main opposition parties joined in backing the Spanish rescue. Germany's Parliament has to endorse all decisions to use money from the eurozone's rescue fund. The country is Europe's biggest economy and the biggest single contributor to the bailout fund. Bailing out struggling eurozone nations isn't popular in prosperous Germany and helping banks is even less so, but Chancellor Angela Merkel's government argued that stabilizing Spain's banking sector - which has been hit hard by a burst real-estate bubble - is in the country's own interests. Eurozone finance ministers are to give final approval Friday. Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said the Spanish government itself is on the right path, pushing through unpopular austerity measures and reforms to get its finances in order. But it needs help to cope with losses at its banks, as investors who fear the Spanish government may be overwhelmed by such costs have pushed its borrowing rates high. "We are helping the Spanish state against the financial markets' excessive nervousness and, in doing so, we are contributing to preserving the eurozone's overall financial stability," Schaeuble said. Spain has the 17-nation eurozone's fourth-biggest economy, far bigger than those of the three countries - Greece, Ireland and Portugal - whose governments have been bailed out. Its ruling conservative Popular Party used its majority in the Spanish Parliament to push through the latest round of austerity measures on Thursday, which include a rise in sales taxes and a wage cut for civil servants. The vote followed an auction of medium-term Spanish bonds, where the government had to pay substantially higher interest rates to unload 2.96 billion (3.62 billion US dollars) in bonds maturing in 2014, 2017 and 2019. Demand was roughly two times the amount on offer for each issue. But that was down from earlier auctions. In the secondary bond market, where issued debt is traded openly, the interest rate, or yield, on benchmark Spanish 10-year bonds, a measure of investor worries about the security of a country's debt, was at 6.95 percent Thursday, up 0.05 percentage points on the day. Meanwhile France's borrowing rates have dropped sharply in a 9.1 billion euro (11.1 billion US dollar) sale of medium and long-term bonds, signalling that investors are seeking haven from shakier European economies. Yields on French bonds have been dropping and even entered negative territory on short-term bonds earlier this month. While France also has huge government debts, it is perceived as less volatile than neighbouring Spain and other struggling European countries. France's borrowing rates fell on three-year bonds from 1.09 percent in February to 0.12 percent in Thursday's auction. Rates on four-year bonds fell from 1.59 percent in January to 0.53 percent on Thursday. The government also sold seven-year, 10-year and 28-year inflation-linked bonds at lower rates. Demand was high though the overall total was on the low end of the government's goals.

Spanish fever recurs, pushing up borrowing costs
http://www.euronews.com/ Investors have become wary of Spain's financial health again, forcing the government to pay ever more to borrow money. Ten year bonds went above 6 per cent, after data showing Spanish banks borrowed record amounts from the ECB. There are fears Spanish bonds might hit the psychological 7 per cent panic barrier unless the ECB starts buying again.

European stock markets rallied on Tuesday, after a successful Spanish debt auction fueled confidence, sending yields on peripheral euro-zone government bonds sharply lower. Additionally, weak economic data from the region raised expectations that the European Central Bank may cut interest rates, further boosting market sentiment. The Stoxx Europe 600 index XX:SXXP +2.43% jumped 2.4% to close at 292.63, marking the biggest one-day percentage gain since August last year.

The solid move helped the index mostly recover from a 2.5% decline seen last week, when the benchmark posted its worst weekly performance since November 2012 after signals of slowing growth in China. In Tuesday's trade, strong earnings reports helped lift shares. Shares of ARM Holdings PLC UK:ARM +11.85% ARMH +12.85% rallied 12%, after the chip maker posted a better-than-expected 28% rise in first-quarter revenue, boosted by strong demand for its microchip designs. Shares of Compagnie Financiere Richemont SA CH:CFR +8.29% gained 8.3%. The luxury watchmaker and jewelry company said it expects net profit to rise 30% in 2013, boosted by favorable exchange rates. For the broader European markets, stocks started to move firmly higher in midmorning trade after Spain's government reportedly sold 3.011 billion euros ($3.93 billion) in Treasury bills at sharply lower funding costs than at previous auctions.

"Spain and Italy bonds are very liquid and if you can buy 10-year Italian paper at a 4% yield as opposed to French debt at 1.7%, and you believe the ECB will hold the fort, these are perceived as attractive investments. There has been a shift in market psychology—investors have gone from perceiving Italy and Spain as high risks to high yields," he added. But with political instability in Italy and worries over the banking sector in Spain, the fundamentals haven't changed, Spiro said. "Investors expect the rally to continue, because central banks are effectively propping up the bond markets with cheap liquidity," he said. "There's a dangerous disconnect between market sentiment and the country fundamentals. The greater the disconnect the more scope there is for the market to correct in a disorderly manner."

(26 Jun 2012) STORYLINE Moody's Investor Service has cut its credit ratings on 28 Spanish banks, saying the weakening financial condition of Spain's government is making it more difficult for that country to support its lenders. Moody's also said the banks are vulnerable to losses from Spain's busted real estate bubble. The announcement from Moody's came on the same day that Spain's government formally asked for help from its European neighbours in cleaning up its stricken banking sector. However the request left many questions unanswered, including how much of a 125 (b) billion US dollar loan package Spain would ask for. That uncertainty led to losses on Monday in stock markets across Europe and US Bond investors pushed Spain's borrowing costs higher, a sign of lagging confidence in the country's ability to support its banks. The downgrades are a measure of Moody's view on the ability of the 28 banks to repay their debts. Moody's said the downgrades stemmed from its lowering of Spain's credit rating by three notches earlier this month. The Spanish economy, the fourth-largest of the 17 countries that use the euro currency, is suffering from the aftershocks of a real estate bust that has devastated families as well as banks. Unemployment is nearly 25 percent. The Spanish government's financial fate is intertwined with that of the country's banks. Two-thirds of the government bonds are owned by Spanish banks, pension funds and insurance companies. Moody's said in a statement that the agency is encouraged by measures being taken by Spain to support its banks.

Spain sells bonds but pays higher yields
http://www.euronews.com/ Spain managed to sell all the government bonds it wanted at its latest auction - 2.5 billion euros worth. But investors' worries about the state of the economy and the struggles Madrid is having to tame its deficit meant a rise in the bond yields, that is the amount of interest offered. Spain has again slipped into recession and the economy has been contracting or showing minimal growth for four years. It is not under too much pressure as, including earlier issuance, the government has now raised half of its gross target for this year. It has benefited from market liquidity after Europe's banks took more than a trillion euros of ultra-cheap three-year cash (LTRO) from the European Central Bank in December and February. "A reasonable set of results, which will go some way to allaying fears the domestic bid for Spanish bonds has dried up. That said, as evidenced by the accepted yield on the 10-year, this support does come at a price," rate strategist at Rabobank Richard McGuire said.

Spanish bank rescue plans moves forward
http://www.euronews.com/ Spain is stepped up it efforts to save the country's troubled banks with a plan to make them recognise the huge losses from the bursting of the property bubble. The government of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is expected to reveal full details on Friday, but financial sources said the lenders will be told to put aside another 35 billion euros to cover bad loans. That is on top of the 54 billion euro financial cushion already demanded in reforms announced in February. Spain's banks have close to 300 billion euros in total exposure to the building sector, including property seized as collateral. That is equivalent to around 30 percent of the country's gross domestic product. Repayment is unlikely of at least 184 billion euros worth of those loans. Meanwhile shares in Spain's fourth largest lender, Bankia, fell further on Wednesday ahead of the expected announcement of a 10 billion euro government bailout for the bank. It holds 10 percent of the Spanish banking system's deposits and is the most exposed to toxic assets. Previously Prime Minister Rajoy had said he would not put more public money into rescuing the banks but he has had to do a U-turn. Uncertainty over the final cost of a rescue meant Spanish government bond yields broke through the psychologically important six percent level, which is considered unaffordable over the long term. Investors have yet to be convinced as this will be the fourth banking sector overhaul in three years. As some Spanish lenders are unlikely to be able to find the extra funds without public help, there is an increased probability that the Madrid government may have to issue more debt to bail them out. Ben Levett, analyst at consultancy 4Cast said: "It depends what's announced, but right now it feels like smoke and mirrors and not the cathartic moment that Spain needs. It looks more like the government has panicked and pushed something out." Find us on: Youtube http://bit.ly/zr3upY Facebook http://www.facebook.com/euronews.fans Twitter http://twitter.com/euronews
Foreign investors shun Italy and Spain
http://www.euronews.com/ Foreigners are increasingly not interested in buying Italian and Spanish government bonds according the Fitch credit ratings agency. It said the number of Italian bonds held by international institutional investors had fallen from 50 percent in 2008 to 32 percent last year. For Spain, foreign ownership has fallen from 60 percent to 40 percent in that period. Fitch sees that trend continuing over the next few quarters, until such time as Italy and Spain's financial outlooks seem set to improve or investors become more open to risk-taking. The rating agency said the foreign investor outflows have been offset by significant flows within the Eurosystem of central banks, reflecting increased use of central bank liquidity by Spanish and Italian banks. In a statement it said: "The ECB money has fulfilled a triple role of supplying banks with funding, enabling them to increase purchases of sovereign debt to replace non-resident outflows and supporting the balance of payments of these economies."

Wide interior of Madrid stock exchange trading floor STORYLINE Spain's economy continued to shrink in the third quarter, contracting by 0.4 percent compared with the previous three months, according to central bank estimates on Tuesday. The figure will increase pressure on Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy to seek financial help from Europe. This is the fifth quarter in a row that Spain's economic output has contracted. Earlier this month, the International Monetary Fund forecast that Spain's economy would contract 1.3 percent next year, more than double the government's prediction. The government has introduced austerity measures and financial and labour reforms, leading to many strikes and protests across the country. On Tuesday, lawmakers were debating budget spending cuts for 2013, as several thousand people prepared to take part in a demonstration outside Parliament. Speaking at the start of the debate, Finance Minister Cristobal Montoro said the draft budget "aimed to combat the crisis". He said the budget was necessary to make sure that 2013 was the last year of recession for Spain. Spain is in its second recession in three years with near 25 percent unemployment. The country is one of the focal points in Europe's financial crisis: if Spain defaults on its debts or needs a full-blown bailout, the finances - and credibility - of the 17-country group that uses the euro could be stretched to breaking point. The government is battling to reduce its bloated deficit from 8.9 percent of GDP last year to 6.3 percent in 2012 and 4.5 percent next year. However, the Bank of Spain warned on Tuesday that although many of the government's measures have yet to have an effect on the deficit, more austerity may be needed to reach the year-end target. Earlier in the day, the Treasury sold 3.53 (b) billion euros (4.61 (b) billion US dollars) in three- and six-month bills as investors continued to express their concern over Spain's ability to manage its finances. "The auction has been slightly above the objective," said Salvador Isasa, general manager at Inversis Bank. "Bearing in mind what we have seen over the last few months we are talking about reasonable interest rates," he added. Demand was more than four times the amount offered in the three-month category and almost double in the longer-term bills.

ECB's 'Save the euro' moves some way off
http://www.euronews.com/ Under pressure to 'Save the euro' the European Central Bank is gearing up to buy Italian and Spanish government bonds on the open market - but not yet. ECB President Mario Draghi said it will only act after eurozone governments activate EU bailout funds to also buy bonds. There will be no ECB intervention before September and countries being helped will have to accept strict conditions and supervision. Draghi also outlined more moves that may be taken to support the euro: "The governing council will consider further non-standard monetary policy measures according to what is required to repair monetary policy transmission. In the coming weeks we will design the appropriate modalities for such policy measures" The ECB chief admitted the German central bank chief Jens Weidmann has reservations about bond-buying and that further efforts will be needed to persuade the Bundesbank before there is a final vote to take action. Financial markets seemed underwhelmed by the announcements, with some investors having interpreted Draghi's recent comments as a sign of imminent rather than future and conditional action. At that time he said that the ECB would do whatever it takes within its mandate to protect the currency bloc from collapse adding "and believe me, it will be enough". The ECB did not cut interest rates this month. They were kept at a record low 0.75 percent despite the Bank's experts concluding that eurozone economic growth is weak and will recover only very gradually as uncertainty about the outlook is sapping confidence.

Moody's cuts ratings of 28 Spanish banks
The banking crisis in Spain has deepened, as Moody's, the credit rating agency, has now downgraded 28 Spanish banks, including Banco Santander. Santander suffered a ratings cut from A3 to Baa2, and that rating itself is under review for a possible further downgrade. That puts Santander one notch above Spain's government bond rating that was downgraded earlier this month to Baa3, just above junk status. The cut to the long-term debt and deposit ratings of the banks comes just a week after the Eurozone's fourth largest economy formally sought a bailout for its banks. Moody's has stated that the reduced credit worthiness of Spanish government bonds, and the bank's links to sovereign debt, were the reason for the downgrade. The banks' ties to the real estate boom that went bust are cited as another reason. The ratings cut of Spain's banks comes only three days after Moody's downgraded 15 of the world's biggest banks, including British banks Barclays, RBS and HSBC. An independent audit of Spain's banks last week found that they will need up to 62bn euros in extra funding. European authorities had already agreed to provide up to 100bn euros ahead of assessments of the banks' needs. Written and narrated by Alfred Joyner
