Portugal's bonds weakened on Wednesday, reversing a rally fuelled by a move to lower its near-term debt refinancing burden, as concerns lingered that Lisbon may still need more international support. The country swapped 6.6 billion euros of short-term bonds for longer-dated ones on Tuesday, a larger than expected amount that moves it closer to its goal of regaining market access next year as it exits a 78 billion euro bailout programme.
