An interest-rate hike from 'across the pond' in the U.S. is, by consensus, nearly certain. A key political outcome in the Netherlands also motivated caution, with far-right candidate Geert Wilders' popularity likely to presage voting strength for France's Marine Le Pen. As New York trading was in part hamstrung by a mid-March blizzard, gains in Europe's RWE AG and Ocado PLC lent sector cues to bond traders.
