Japan's key bond yield falls to 14-month low

June 27, 2014



The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond ended at a 14-month low Friday on buying spurred by higher U.S. government bond prices on Thursday and sharp falls 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 0.555 percent, down 0.010 percentage point from Thursday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds rose 0.11 point to 145.74 on the Osaka Exchange.
