Argentine bonds rally after U.S. debt ruling

BUENOS AIRES Thu Nov 29, 2012 9:17am EST

BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Argentine bonds rallied in Buenos Aires on Thursday after a U.S. appeals court decision gave the country an unexpected reprieve in a legal battle with holdout creditors that had raised fears of an imminent default.

Sovereign bonds rose 5.2 percent on average in over-the-counter trade, while dollar-denominated GDP-linked warrants surged 22 percent in opening deals on the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange.
