SYDNEY: Ten-year Treasury yields fell, taking the dollar down against the yen, after Italy’s political impasse triggered a risk-off mood in holiday-hit markets. Oil prices retreated further, sending West Texas crude to its lowest in six weeks.

Stocks declined, with shares of iPhone screen makers tumbling on a report that Apple Inc. is shifting to next-generation technology. The stronger yen left the Topix index of shares with a seventh straight session of declines, the longest losing streak since September 2016.
