Benchmark market rates for sovereign securities issued by the German government fell to the lowest level since the fall of 2016 on Wednesday amid the ongoing trade tensions sparked by the trade dispute between the United States and China. German Bund yields were under pressure since the begging of the week amid trade worries as market watchers turned towards safe-haven investments.
