Bunds fall as equities rise, Italian sale eyed  LONDON: German Bund futures dipped on Thursday as global equities rose overnight, with investors looking to Italy's last funding hurdle of 2012 to gauge whether a recent rally in higher-yielding bonds would continue.   The treasury is seeking to place up to 6 billion euros of five- and 10-year bonds at an auction that could bring Rome within reach of its 460-465 billion euros ($594-$600 billion)2012 borrowing target.   Italian bond prices did not cheapen in the run-up to ...
