Japan's key bond yield ends morning flat at 0.580%

June 23, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond ended Tuesday morning flat, as buying following falls in Tokyo stocks was offset by selling amid a sense of caution about possibly current high 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 0.580 percent, unchanged from Monday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds was up 0.06 point to 145.44 on the Osaka Exchange.
