German bunds maintain cautious trade on upbeat producer prices; investors eye 10-year auction

The German bunds maintained cautious trade Monday, following upbeat producer prices during the month of February. Also, investors remain keen to watch the 10-year auction, scheduled to be held on March 22 which will remain crucial in determining the future direction of the bond market.

Germany's producer prices increased at the fastest pace in more than five years in February, figures from Destatis showed Monday. Producer prices advanced 3.1 percent in February from prior year, the fastest since December 2011, when prices gained 3.5 percent. Prices had climbed 2.4 percent in January.

Meanwhile, the German stock index DAX Index traded 0.37 percent lower at 12,051.50 by 10:10 GMT, while at 10:00GMT, the FxWirePro's Hourly Euro Strength Index remained neutral at -4.93 (a reading above +75 indicates a bullish trend, while that below -75 a bearish trend).
