Japan's key bond yield ends at 3-week low

June 20, 2014

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Japanese government ended at a three-week low Friday, as buying in the afternoon more than offset selling for position adjustments earlier in the day.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main barometer of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading at 0.575 percent, the lowest level since late May and down 0.010 percentage point from Thursday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds rose 0.09 point to 145.43 on the Osaka Exchange.
