Japan's key bond yield ends flat at 0.550% in morning

July 8, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond ended Wednesday morning flat as selling to take profits offset buying triggered by falls in Tokyo stocks and rises in the U.S. government bond prices the previous day.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended morning interdealer trading at 0.550 percent, unchanged from Tuesday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds was up 0.07 point to 145.79 on the Osaka Exchange.
