Treasuries Drop as China Plans to Help Solve Euro Debt Crisis

Feb. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Treasuries fell for the first time in four days after People’s Bank of China Governor Zhou Xiaochun said China will participate in solving Europe’s debt crisis, reducing demand for haven assets.

“China could make Europe’s problems go away,” said Peter Jolly, head of market research at National Australia Bank Ltd. in Sydney. “They have the funds. To the extent that China will participate in the European solution, it takes away some of the flight to quality in Treasuries.”

Ten-year yields rose two basis points to 1.96 percent as of 12:01 p.m. in Tokyo, according to Bloomberg Bond Trader prices. The 2 percent security due February 2022 declined 6/32, or $1.88 per $1,000 face amount, to 100 3/8.
