Japan's key bond yield falls to 0.570%

June 25, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond finished lower Wednesday as risk aversion set in amid the instability in Iraq and falling Tokyo stocks.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading at 0.570 percent, down 0.005 percentage point from Tuesday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds gained 0.09 point to 145.53 on the Osaka Exchange.
