Bond Yields

After three months with barely a budge the Irish government 9-year bond yield as calculated by Bloomberg jumped back over 7% in the last few days.

Bond Yields 6M to 16-05-12

The yield did rise as high as 7.7% earlier but is now back to around the 7.4% level it began the day at.  There have be no domestic changes to explain the move in recent days and the driver is uncertainty in Greece.  On this day last year the equivalent yield was 11.2%.
