Germany got bids exceeding its maximum target at a sale of 10-year bunds for the first time in three auctions of the securities.

The nation received bids for 5.06 billion euros of the September 2022 securities, versus a 4 billion-euro goal for the sale. It sold the bonds to yield 1.56 percent, up from 1.52 percent at an auction on Sept. 26 and the highest rate at a 10- year offering since April.
