China's government bonds fell after the central bank drained funds from the financial system for the first time in eight months. The People's Bank of China conducted 30 billion yuan ($4.8 billion) of 28-day repurchase agreements on Tuesday and didn't offer any reverse contracts that add cash to the money market, according to a statement. The contracts were offered at a yield of 2.75 percent, unchanged from the previous sale of similar-maturity securities on June 19. "The central bank is probably worried that there is too much money in the banking system," said Wang Huane, a senior trader at Qilu Bank Co in Jinan, the capital of Shandong province.
