price to yield 1.44 percent, down from 1.46 percent late Friday.

for metals.

rose 0.7 percent to $7,452.50 per tonne by 0123 GMT. It fell to

sell assets perceived as risky, boosting the dollar and U.S.
debt.
    Brent September crude fell $3. 57 to settle at $
103. 26 a barrel, having fallen to as low as $102.42 intra-day.
