August 19, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond rose slightly Wednesday morning on selling amid a sense of caution over recent higher bond prices.

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

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds was down 0.06 point to 146.13 on the Osaka Exchange.
