Japan's key bond yield falls to 15-month low

July 11, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond finished at a 15-month low Friday on buying in tandem with falls in European, U.S. and Japanese stocks due to worries about the financial health of Portugal's leading bank.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading at 0.530 percent, down 0.010 percentage point from Thursday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds rose 0.10 point to 145.95 on the Osaka Exchange.
