0219 GMT [Dow Jones] Korea government bonds are higher, helped by continued risk aversion amid worries over the euro zone debt crisis, while data tips weaker growth in China and the U.S. "Yields of local bonds, like those on U.S. Treasurys, are already trading at very low levels, but there is no clear momentum yet to revive risk appetite in the market," says Kim Se-hun, a fixed-income analyst at Daishin Securities. "The bullish run for local bonds is expected to continue in June. The three-year yield may fall near the BOK's policy rate of 3.25%" in the near term, he adds. The three-year yield is down 2 bps at 3.30%, the five-year yield is down 3 bps at 3.40% and the one-year yield is down 4 bps at 3.65%. Lead June bond futures are up nine ticks at 104.74.
