Japan's key bond yield falls to 0.530%

July 17, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond finished lower Thursday, supported by bond-buying operations by the Bank of Japan and the weak tone of Tokyo stocks in the afternoon.

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 Wednesday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds climbed 0.08 point to 145.93 on the Osaka Exchange.
