June 19, 2014

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Japanese government bond finished lower Thursday after a rise in U.S. Treasury prices overnight, while a bond buying operation by the Bank of Japan had a limited impact.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading at 0.585 percent, down 0.005 percentage point from Wednesday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds gained 0.07 point to 145.34 on the Osaka Exchange.
