May 14, 2014

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Japanese government bond ended slightly lower Wednesday reflecting a lackluster performance of the Tokyo stock market.

The yield on the No. 333, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading at 0.600 percent, down 0.005 percentage point from Tuesday's close.

The price of the June futures contract for 10-year bonds rose 0.06 point to 145.11 on the Osaka Exchange.
