Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- German bonds extended declines after the nation failed to attract bids covering the maximum target at an auction of 30-year securities today.
The yield on bonds due in July 2042 rose five basis points to 2.86 percent at 10:11 a.m. in London.
Germany drew bids for 1.78 billion euros ($2.5 billion) of the 30-year debt on sale today, compared with a maximum sales target of 2 billion euros, according to a statement from the Bundesbank.
