Japan's key bond yield edges higher to 0.540%

July 16, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond finished slightly higher Wednesday as selling took the upper hand amid a sense of caution over higher bond prices.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main barometer of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading at 0.540 percent, up 0.005 percentage point from Tuesday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds declined 0.03 point to 145.85 on the Osaka Exchange.
