Developing-country stock markets advanced on Wednesday, with the benchmark MSCI Emerging Market Index gaining 0.2%, as Chinese banking shares led the rally.

Financial Markets…Germany’s government sold €4.3 billion ($5.5 billion) of 2-year bonds at a negative yield of minus 0.02% the second time on record and down from 0.07% when comparable debt was auctioned last month, amid strong demand for the nation’s debt. The first negative yield debt was sold in July.

Italian borrowing costs fell to a two-year low as the country sold €3.5 billion ($4.5 billion) of 3-year bonds. The new debt was priced to yield 2.64%, lower than the 2.86% at the last auction of similar-maturity debt in October. Italy also sold €1.5 billion of bonds due in 2023 and 2029, the first bond issue with a maturity of longer than 15 years since May 2011.

High-income Economies…Retail sales in the US fell 0.3% (m/m) in October, the first monthly decline in four months, following a 1.3% increase in September, partly due to the disruption caused by hurricane Sandy which hurt sales in some parts of the US, but also from consumers’ concerns that taxes could go up next year as part of negotiations to avoid the US “fiscal cliff”.

Euro Area industrial production fell 2.5% (m/m) in September, the most in three years, following a 0.9% increase in August, amid a weakening Eurozone economy and fiscal austerity that have cut into demand. The fall in Eurozone output was led by double digit declines in Ireland (-12.6% m/m) and Portugal (-12% m/m), but industrial output in core economies Germany and France also fell, by 2.1% and 1.8% respectively. On a quarter-over-quarter annualized basis, Eurozone industrial growth slowed to 1.2% (3m/3m saar) in September from 1.8% in August.
