Japan's key bond yield falls to 0.5%

August 14, 2014

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Japanese government bond ended lower Thursday reflecting overnight declines in U.S. Treasury yields as well as a smooth five-year bond auction.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading at 0.500 percent, down 0.005 percentage point from Wednesday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds rose 0.07 point to 146.17 on the Osaka Exchange.
