Japan's key bond yield falls to 0.555% in morning

July 7, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond fell slightly Tuesday morning on buying in the wake of rises in U.S. government bond prices and falls in Tokyo shares.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended morning interdealer trading at 0.555 percent, down 0.005 percentage point from Monday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds was up 0.09 point to 145.69 on the Osaka Exchange.
