    TREASURIES
    NEW YORK - U.S. Treasuries yields climbed on Tuesday as
upbeat Chinese industrial output and retail sales data eased
fears of an economic slowdown, while ebbing concerns about a
Western-led attack on Syria also reduced demand for safe-haven
U.S. debt. 
    Benchmark yields approached 3 percent following
stronger-than-expected industrial output that reinforced other
signs that China's economy was stabilizing after slowing for
more than two years. This improving trend has emerged just as
major development economies brace for potential fallout from an
expected trimming of U.S. stimulus, known as QE3.

GMT. It dropped to $1,357.34 on Tuesday, its weakest since
August 22, after crude oil fell on easing geopolitical tensions
