Gilt prices shot higher after the Debt Management Office (DMO) said it planned to issue 194.8 billion pounds ($267.5 billion) of bonds in the current 2021/22 financial year, 57.8 billion pounds less than its previous remit. Both 10-year and 30-year British government bonds recorded their biggest one-day price rises since March 2020, when prices surged after the Bank of England restarted its quantitative easing programme during Britain's plunge into a COVID-19 lockdown.

PARIS (Reuters) -France released a list of sanctions that could come into effect from Nov. 2 unless enough progress is made in its post-Brexit fishing row with Britain, and said it was working on a second round of sanctions that could affect power supplies to the UK. The British government said the "threats are disappointing and disproportionate" and would be seeking urgent clarification before considering action in response.
