Greek banks tender rest of Greek debt holdings to help reach buyback target
According to reports, Greece has reached the bond buyback target at 31.5 billion euros on Tuesday. The deadline for submitting bids was extended by one more day yesterday, due to the inability to reach the expected 30 billion euros by initial deadline which ended on December 7 at 17:00 GMT. Greek banks probably tendered the total amount of the Greek debt they hold in order to help cover the difference between the 26.5 billion euros received last Friday and the the expected 30 billion euros. This means that the EU and the IMF will now be able to unblock the next bailout tranche for the indebted country.

Spain held a debt auction on Tuesday during which it managed to sell 3.89 billion euros of 12- and 18 -month government bods, above the targeted 3.5 billion euros. 2.39 billion euros of 12-month bills were auctioned at an average yield of 2.556%, down from 2.797% seen at the previous auction. The bid to cover ratio was at 2.46, compared with the previous 2.12. 1.5 billion euros of 18-month bonds were sold at an average yield of 2.778% versus 3.034%. The bid to cover ratio was at 2.7 from 5.72 seen previously. – FXstreet.com
