Safe-haven German bond yields ticked up in early Friday trade as stimulus hopes in the United States supported global markets. Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives are working on a $2.2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package that could be voted on next week, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reiterated she is ready to negotiate on it with the White House. That news helped assuage fears this week that recovery from the pandemic could be running out of steam, which shook markets. “We see core bond markets mainly exposed to (at times erratic) swings in the equity complex and (at times contradictory) news regarding a potential US stimulus package,” UniCredit analysts told clients.“U.S. Treasury and Bund markets are likely to continue their seesawing pattern of the past two weeks or so for another few days.” Germany’s 10-year yield was up 1 basis point to -0.50% in early trade.
