Japan's key bond yield rises to 0.560%

July 1, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond ended Wednesday morning higher on selling triggered by falls in U.S. government bond prices the previous day and solid performances of Tokyo stocks in the morning session.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended morning interdealer trading at 0.560 percent, up 0.010 percentage point from Tuesday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds was down 0.04 point to 145.66 on the Osaka Exchange.
