Greek yields fall as Eurogroup says looking at debt relief measures

LONDON, April 22 (Reuters) - Greek bond yields fell on Friday after the head of euro zone finance ministers said the Eurogroup was looking at a package of debt relief measures for Athens.

Two-year yields fell 52 basis points to 10.46 percent, while 10-year yields edged down 14 basis points to 8.72 percent .

“There are some positive comments on Greece and nobody wants a repeat of 2015 when things heated up,” said Daniel Lenz, strategist at DZ Bank, referring to fraught bailout talks between Athens and its international creditors last summer.
