LONDON, Jan 8 (Reuters) - Turkey’s sovereign dollar-denominated bonds tumbled on Tuesday amid fears that tensions between Washington and Ankara were rising over Syria.
The bonds were coming under pressure across the curve, with longer-dated issues falling the most. The 2041 issue fell 1.572 cents in the dollar to its lowest in three weeks with yields grinding higher towards 8 percent.
