With a negative yield curve and continued contraction in the economy, deflationary forces are increasing in Germany.(Advantage Data Inc.).  Extensive corporate-bond index data showed a net daily yield increment for high-grade versus high-yield constituents. High-grade bonds edged out high-yield debt as of 3 PM, London time.  Among European high-grade bonds showing a concurrence of top price gains at appreciable volumes traded,  AstraZeneca PLC (USD) 4% 1/17/2029 made some analysts' 'Conviction buy' lists. (See the chart for AstraZeneca PLC bonds below).
