German 10-Year Yields Little Changed at 1.44% After Jobless Data

German government bonds stayed little changed after a report showed unemployment in the nation increased less than economists forecast in December.

The 10-year bund yield was at 1.44 percent as of 9:20 a.m. London time.

The number of people out of work rose a seasonally adjusted 3,000 to 2.942 million, the Nuremberg-based Federal Labor Agency said today. Economists predicted an increase of 10,000, the median of 19 estimates in a Bloomberg News survey showed. The adjusted jobless rate held steady at 6.9 percent.
