Japan's key bond yield flat at 0.495%

August 19, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond finished Tuesday flat as buying after a smooth auction of 20-year government bonds offset selling in the wake of a rise in Tokyo stocks.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading at 0.495 percent, unchanged from Monday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds declined 0.03 point to 146.19 on the Osaka Exchange.
