Portuguese bond yields fell to a record low 3.57% Wednesday when Lisbon issued €750m of 10-year bonds at its first regular debt auction since the 2011 bailout. PM Pedro Passos Coelho said the auction signals “strong confidence about the future”. Portugal's bailout programme is due to end on 17 May.
