July 28, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond finished lower Monday as buying took the upper hand in the wake of rises in U.S. government bond prices on Friday.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading at 0.520 percent, down 0.005 percentage point from Friday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds rose 0.06 point to 145.97 on the Osaka Exchange.
