Japan's key bond yield up slightly ahead of Fed policy meeting

July 30, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond finished higher Wednesday on selling for position adjustments ahead of a decision by the U.S. central bank's policy-making Federal Open Market Committee due out later in the day.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading at 0.525 percent, up 0.005 percentage point from Tuesday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds declined 0.01 point to 145.98 on the Osaka Exchange.
