The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond ended Thursday morning slightly higher on selling amid a sense of caution over higher prices triggered by drops in long-term interest rates 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 0.545 percent, up 0.005 percentage point from Wednesday's close.
The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds was up 0.04 point to 145.86 on the Osaka Exchange.
