June 12, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond ended Friday morning slightly higher on selling amid a sense of caution over higher bond prices.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended morning interdealer trading at 0.600 percent, up 0.005 percentage point from Thursday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds ended flat at 145.24 on the Osaka Exchange.
