Economics:Spanish Treasury raises 3 bln euros at high interest rates

MADRID, June 25 - The Spanish Treasury on Tuesday placed bonds worth of 3.07 billion euros (4.02 billion U.S. dollars) on the market, paying the highest interest rate so far this year and registering a high demand of around 8 billion euros.

A total of 934 million euros worth of 3-month bonds had an average interest rate of 0.87 percent, higher than 0.33 percent at the last auction.

A further 2.14 billion euros of 9-month bonds fetched an average interest rate of 1.4 percent, up from the previous 0.78 percent.

After the auction, Spain's risk premium stood at 320 points while Spain's interest rate on 10-year bonds stood at 4.97 percent. For the first time since February, the key rate passed 5 percent on Tuesday.

The IBEX-35 stock market in Madrid saw Spain's risk premium climb several points this week, passing the 330-point mark indicating an increase of tensions in the Spanish stock market which also had an impact on Tuesday's auction.

This is the last auction of the first semester of the year. Spain has so far auctioned around 130 billion euros on the market covering between 55 percent and 60 percent of the country's total financial needs for 2013.

The Spanish treasury will hold another auction on July 4.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
