  • [01] Greek bond market closing report

    (ANA-MPA) -- The yield spread between the 10-year Greek and German benchmark bonds shrank to 13.58 pct in the domestic electronic secondary bond market on Tuesday, from 14.02 pct the previous day, as the market reacted positively to the announcement of a Medium-term Fiscal Strategy Framework by the Greek government. The Greek bond yielded 16.63 pct and the German Bund 3.05 pct.

    Turnover in the market was a low 36 million euros, of which 27 million euros were buy orders and the remaining 9.0 million euros were sell orders. The five-year benchmark bond was the most heavily traded security with a turnover of 14 million euros.

    In interbank markets, interest rates were largely unchanged. The 12-month rate was 2.15 pct, the six-month rate 1.71 pct, the three-month rate 1.43 pct and the one-month rate 1.24 pct. (ANA-MPA)

    [02] Αμερικανικές κυρώσεις

    Νέες κυρώσεις εναντίον "επτά ξένων οντοτήτων", στο πλαίσιο της προσπάθειας τους για τον περιορισμό του πυρηνικού προγράμματος του Ιράν, ανακοίνωσαν σήμερα οι ΗΠΑ.

    Οι κυρώσεις αφορούν σε εταιρείες, κυρίως κινέζικες, που κάνουν εμπόριο που συνδέεται με την παραγωγή όπλων μαζικής καταστροφής ή πυραύλων με το Ιράν, τη Βόρεια Κορέα και τη Συρία.

    Πρόκειται για δυο εταιρείες της Λευκορωσίας, τρεις εταιρείες και έναν πολίτη της Κίνας, πέντε οντότητες και ένα πολίτη του Ιράν, μια εταιρεία της Βόρειας Κορέας, την Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) καθώς και έξι άλλες μικρότερες πετρελαϊκές και ναυτιλιακές εταιρείες της Βενεζουέλας για εμπορικές συναλλαγές με το Ιράν, κατά παράβαση της απαγόρευσης των ΗΠΑ, τόνισε ο δεύτερος στην ιεραρχία του Στέιτ Ντιπάρτμεντ, Τζιμ Στάινμπεργκ.

    Τη Δευτέρα, η Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση αποφάσισε να επιβάλει κυρώσεις σε περισσότερες από εκατό εταιρείες για τις οποίες υπάρχουν υπόνοιες ότι συνδέονται με το πυρηνικό και βαλλιστικό πρόγραμμα του Ιράν, καθώς και σε βάρος πέντε ατόμων, στην πλειοψηφία τους επικεφαλής επιχειρήσεων.
