German Bunds Pare Advance on Report of Cyprus Deposit Guarantees

German government bonds pared an advance as state-run broadcaster CYBC reported Cyprus Popular Bank Plc will be shut down with proceeds from the sale of good assets to be returned to depositors.

The rate on 10-year bunds was two basis points lower to 1.37 percent at 3:53 p.m. London time, after falling as much as four basis points to 1.35 percent.

Cyprus’s central bank told CYBC that it hasn’t been informed or taken such a decision.
