Japan's bond yield ends flat at 0.530%

August 3, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond ended Monday morning flat as selling in the wake of rises in Tokyo stocks offset buying following falls in U.S. government bond yields last weekend.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended morning interdealer trading at 0.530 percent, unchanged from Friday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds was up 0.01 point to 145.95 on the Osaka Exchange.
