Japan's key bond yield ends flat at 0.515%

August 5, 2014

The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond finished Wednesday morning flat as buying in the wake of declines in Tokyo stocks offset selling amid a sense of caution over 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 0.515 percent, unchanged from Tuesday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds was up 0.04 point to 146.10 on the Osaka Exchange.
