Japan's key bond yield rises to 0.535%

July 30, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond ended Thursday morning higher on selling triggered by lower U.S. government bond prices and a solid performance by the Tokyo stock market.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended morning interdealer trading at 0.535 percent, up 0.010 percentage point from Wednesday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds was down 0.05 point to 145.93 on the Osaka Exchange.
