Japan's key bond yield ends flat at 0.540% in morning

July 16, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond ended Thursday morning flat as selling in the wake of rises in Tokyo stocks offset bond-buying operations by the Bank of Japan.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended morning interdealer trading at 0.540 percent, unchanged from Wednesday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds was up 0.04 point at 145.89 on the Osaka Exchange.
