Bunds fall as receding concerns over Syria underpin stocks
LONDON, Sept 10
LONDON, Sept 10 (Reuters) - German Bund futures fell on Tuesday as receding concerns of military action against Syria supported global stock markets.
U.S. President Barack Obama said on Monday he saw a possible breakthrough in the crisis with Syria after Russia proposed that its ally hand over chemical weapons for destruction, offering a path that averts planned U.S. military strikes.
German Bunds were 45 ticks lower at 137.17, with European stocks seen rising.
