TOKYO , Dec. 16 -- ( Kyodo ) _ The yield on the benchmark 10-year Japanese government bond ended Monday unchanged as its early rise prompted by speculation about an early tapering of U.S. monetary stimulus was offset by late bond buying induced by a fall in Tokyo stocks. The yield on the No. 332, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading at 0.685 percent, unchanged from Friday's close. The price of the March futures contract for 10-year bonds rose 0.01 point to 143.86 on the Tokyo Stock Exchange .
