Japan's key bond yield rises to 0.590%

June 18, 2014

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Japanese government bond finished higher Wednesday on selling sparked by an overnight fall in U.S. government bond prices and a gain in Tokyo stocks.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading at 0.590 percent, up 0.005 percentage point from Tuesday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds declined 0.06 point to 145.27 on the Osaka Exchange.
