The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond finished higher Wednesday due to selling to lock in profits 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 interdealer trading at 0.510 percent, up 0.015 percentage point from Tuesday's close.
The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds declined 0.17 point to 146.02 on the Osaka Exchange.
