Germany's 10-year govt bond yield hits new 2-1/2 year low

LONDON, May 15 (Reuters) - Germany’s 10-year government bond yield fell to its lowest since October 2016 on Wednesday as a combination of weak Chinese data, trade tensions between the United States and China, and anti-austerity rhetoric from the Italian government fuelled a safe-haven bid in bonds.

Germany’s 10-year yield was last down 2.5 basis points to -0.098%. (Reporting by Virginia Furness; Editing by Catherine Evans)
