Japan's key bond yield finishes flat in directionless trading

August 25, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond finished Monday flat in directionless trading as buying offset early selling spurred by a rise in Tokyo stocks in the morning session.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading at 0.505 percent, unchanged from Friday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds was up 0.01 point to 146.08 on the Osaka Exchange.
