LONDON Jan 12 Euro zone government bond yields
fell in early trade on Thursday, after President-elect Donald
Trump shed no light on his future fiscal policies at a
long-awaited news conference.
Germany's benchmark 10-year bond yield fell 2 basis points
to its lowest level in just over a week at around 0.23 percent
. Other euro zone bond yields were 2-3 bps lower.
Trump's news conference on Wednesday -- the first since the
Nov. 8 election -- contained no details on tax cuts and
Since his election win on Nov.8, bond markets have come
under pressure from expectations that the economic policies of a
Trump administration would fuel economic growth and inflation.
