    (ANA-MPA) -- Turnover in the Greek electronic secondary bond market totaled 74 million euros on Monday, of which 26 million euros were buy orders and the remaining 48 million euros were sell orders.

    The five-year benchmark bond (August 20, 2015) was the most heavily traded security with a turnover of 7.0 million euros. The yield spread between the 10-year Greek and German benchmark bonds widened further to 572 basis points from 555 bps on Friday, with the Greek bond yielding 8.34 pct and the German Bund 2.62 pct.

    In interbank markets, interest rates continued moving lower.

    The 12-month rate was 1.26 pct, the six-month rate 0.97 pct, the three-month 0.73 pct and the one-month rate 0.43 pct.

    [02] Gov't on oil pipeline

    (ANA-MPA) -- Greece wants the Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline project to operate and is prepared to operate the pipeline if a solution is found between Bulgaria and Russia, government spokesman George Petalotis said on Monday.

    "We have seen the announcement by the Russian side and some (ANA-MPA) thoughts from the Bulgarian side," Petalotis told reporters when questioned about the Bulgarian government's sudden announcement last week that it intends to withdraw from the project. (ANA-MPA).

    (ANA-MPA) -- Greek banks continued suffering from an outflow of saving deposits in April, with the domestic banking system‚s savings reserves falling by around 15.8 billion euros in the January-April period this year, the Bank of Greece announced on Monday. (ANA-MPA)

    The central bank, in a report, said saving deposits by enterprises and households totaled 222.125 billion euros at the end of April, down 6.6 pct from the start of the year, (ANA-MPA) reflecting outflows of private depositors - affected by a negative climate in the country - and lower deposits by enterprises which were using more liquid assets to deal with reduced cashflow conditions.
