Japan's 10-year bond yield falls as yield on U.S. peer drifts lower
TOKYO, June 25 (Reuters) - The yield on 10-year Japanese government bonds fell on Friday amid an absence of market-moving factors in Japan, while sentiment was underpinned as U.S. 10-year Treasury yield drifted lower overnight.
The 10-year JGB yield fell 0.5 basis point to 0.045%.
The 20-year JGB yield was unchanged at 0.425%.
The 30-year JGB yield rose one basis point to 0.675% and the 40-year JGB yield rose two basis points to 0.750%.
At the shorter end, the two-year JGB yield fell 0.5 basis point to minus 0.120%.
Benchmark 10-year JGB futures rose 0.07 point to 151.72, with a trading volume of 11,506 lots.
Weaker than anticipated readings on jobless claims and durable goods orders kept Treasury yields in a tight range on Thursday, with benchmark 10-year Treasury yields hovering just below 1.5%. (Reporting by Tokyo markets team)
