EUROPEAN JUNK BONDS INCHED UP  in price overall, paralleling an upside fluctuation in stocks of Europe's bourses. The   higher-yielding securities edged out less-risky investment-grade debt  on the heels of yesterday's statements from Federal Reserve Chief Janet Yellen. The   Fed's intention to commence winding down its $4.5 trillion balance sheet, along with its underpinning of   raised expectations of a December rate hike, set the stage for upside moves in European financials today.   Deutsche Bank AG  shares gained 2.9%,   Societe Generale  added 2.2%, while M&A (Mergers & Acquisitions) news sent   Commerzbank AG  up 3.5%, as of   3:40 PM, London time.

RISK-OFF SENTIMENT NOTCHED LOWER  among investors in European corporate debt. Relative to yesterday's levels of risk aversion, trades in corporate bonds reflected a   very slight favor for junk bonds in price gains linked to actual trades. Nonetheless   geopolitical overhang amid N. Korean nuclear warhead posturing  kept a lid on gains in risk assets. So too did   pressure on the European insurance sector ahead of projected damage by intense hurricane   Irma, headed for Puerto Rico and Florida. The   Stoxx 600 index vacillated in the shallow red  amid data showing a dip in Germany's manufactured-goods orders, although shares of   Deutsche Bank AG  and  Micro Focus International PLC  posted notable gains.
